Calendar: Conversation and book signing with Lynne Golob Gelfman

Event Description

Lynne Golob Gelfman will discuss her work with Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander, followed by a book signing of trued surface, a monograph presenting nine series of her paintings created over four decades.

Gelfman will discuss her process, which includes a variety of techniques, such as scraping, pouring, soaking, staining and sanding her painting surfaces. The use of pattern and repetition in her work places it dialogue with movements of minimalist abstraction, while she also sites African and Latin American weaving, garments (such as in her Burqa series), and a range of textile fragments she has collected over many years as source material. Her work thru-green.2, 1978 is currently on view in AMERICANA: Formalizing Craft at PAMM. 

Following the conversation, Young Collectors Council (YCC) members will join PAMM’s curatorial team and Miami-based artists Lynne Golob Gelfman, Frances Trombly and Loriel Beltran for bites and cocktails at Brick House. Join YCC by contacting contempos@pamm.org or 305 375 1709.
