New York Studio School is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by the late artist Chuck Bowdish. Organized in collaboration with the artist’s estate, The Worlds of Chuck Bowdish draws on several decades of work to explore the various facets of Bowdish’s highly personal and enigmatic paintings, watercolors, collages, drawings, and sculptures. An opening reception will take place on Friday, January 19, which will include a screening of Peter Wareing’s documentary film, Chuck Bowdish: Painter (2001).
On February 13, NYSS will host an Evening Lecture Series panel discussion on Bowdish’s work featuring Sasha Cher- mayeff, Bruce Gagnier, Ernie Sandidge, and Lisa Steiner. The event will start at 6:30 pm ET and will be held in person and livestreamed on Zoom and YouTube Live. The occasion will also mark the launch of the illustrated exhibition cata- logue, The Worlds of Chuck Bowdish, which will include remembrances by friends and fellow artists, such as SoHyun Bae, Chris Carone, Marianne Gagnier, and Nels Pierce, among others.
