I Will Tell You a Place: Paintings by Brian Rutenberg
January 29, 2011 - May 15, 2011
This exhibition highlighted the work of painter, Brian Rutenberg. Brian Rutenberg’s work is as grounded in Old Master painting and drawing as his sense of place and color is in coastal South Carolina, where he was born and raised. He spent his childhood exploring the coastal wetlands, developing a love for the landscape. He graduated from the College of Charleston, before moving to New York City where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree at the School of Visual Arts. His abstract oil paintings have always reflected his love of the low country, which he freely acknowledges. Rutenberg’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions in prestigious galleries and museums throughout the United States, Europe, and Canada, and he will be the featured artist at the 2011 Morris Museum of Art Gala. The exhibition was organized with the assistance of Brian Rutenberg’s representative, the Jerald Melberg Gallery of Charlotte, North Carolina.
