Stop and Smell the Flowers

It’s flowers, flowers, flowers at Craven Contemporary! Starting Memorial Day Weekend and throughout the summer, the gallery will feature four large flower prints by renowned painter and printmaker Alex Katz. These instantly recognizable works in the artist’s signature pared-down style will have three separate shows revolve around them. The first is a mixed group show of works also featuring flowers by other leading contemporary artists including Nicholas Party, Billy Sullivan, and Jonas Wood. The second show will present works by New York City street artist Michael De Feo or ‘The Flower Guy.’ Michael will be showing pieces from a series of work where he adds his floral treatments and cascades of multicolored petals to existing printed images from the fashion world. The third show will include a selection of Alex Katz portraits alongside the flower prints, showcasing two different but complementary bodies of work by the artist. Alex Katz continues to work in New York City and Maine at age 93 and will have a major retrospective show at the Guggenheim Museum in 2022. Make your plans to visit the shows and be sure to stop and smell the flowers along the way!
