HARRISON, N.Y. - The Neuberger Museum celebrated an opening reception last week for "If the Face Had Wheels," with works by artist Dana Schutz.
Schutz has been dubbed by many as one of the most important young artists to emerge in the last 10 years, the Neuberger Museum said. Her figurative paintings are created with a distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork.
Her exhibit runs from Sept. 25 to Dec. 18. For more information, visit the Museum's website .
Schutz's first 10-year survey of the work was organized by the Neuberger Museum and features approximately 30 paintings and 12 drawings created between 2001 and the present.
"One of the most important young artists to emerge in the past 10 years, she developed a distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork," the museum said in a statement.
Schutz's work has become known for its fusing of fantasy and reality and humor and horror, the Neuberger Museum said.
"I embrace the area between which the subject is composed and decomposing, formed and formless, inanimate and alive," Schutz said of her work.
The exhibit will be open from noon to 5 p.m. daily with $5 admission for adults.
