- Organizing Department: Brooklyn Museum Art School
Spring 1983: FRED GUTZEIT, WATERCOLORS in the Main Gallery of the Brooklyn Museum Art School, Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY, March 20-May 1, 1983. Hours: Weds.-Sats., 10 AM to 5 PM; Suns., Noon to 5 PM
Opening: Sunday, March 20, 2 to 4 PM
Nearly 100 works on paper - transparent watercolor - are included in this show. The majority of works explore subtle color and pattern combinations stemming from our passing industrial urban landscape. Fragments of our visual environment are fused into layers of pattern and unexpected spatial experiences. These precise and complex works suggest an interesting relationship to the artist’s current installations around New York using work gloves as a motif.
