September 7 - October 31, 2017 Reception: Wednesday, September 13, 6-8pm
Crown Point Press announces the exhibition Wayne Thiebaud – Merriment, which focuses on light-heartedness and wit as seen in a new group of Thiebaud’s prints. “If we don’t have a sense of humor,” Wayne Thiebaud has said, “we lack a sense of perspective.” On display September 7 to October 31, the exhibition features etchings of bow-ties and clowns that were made by the artist in the spring of 2017 at Crown Point, and also includes a classic gumball machine reworked from earlier days. A sense of playfulness, delight, and nostalgia weave through all the prints, old and new. There will be a reception with the artist on Wednesday, September 13, from 6-8pm.
