In the project gallery we will show a selection of new gouache paintings from Kalman’s newly published book Beloved Dog. Signed copies of the book will be available at the gallery during the show, and we will hold a book signing on December 12th at which Kalman will be on hand to sign and personalize copies from 3-6 pm. The selection of paintings combines images of personal friends with characters and personalities whom she loves and admires including Gertrude Stein and Victoria Sackville-West, and of course her beloved dog Pete. The book itself reproduces many images from throughout Kalman’s career and represents a fantastic range of styles and emotions. The text, also by Kalman, weaves together the past and present.
