Curator’s Talk and Opening Reception: Saturday, January 18 from 4pm to 6pm
Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) presents a selection of works by artist Moira Dryer (b. 1957, Toronto, Ontario; d. 1992, New York, New York) in conjunction with the major exhibition of Dryer’s early work at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, entitled Moira Dryer: Back in Business. Both exhibitions are curated by GRACE Executive Director and Curator Lily Siegel.
Dryer is primarily known for her large abstract paintings on wood panel. A majority of the works on view were given as gifts to, or purchased by, friends and family directly from the artist. Also included are selections from the artist’s archive and a final painting left in Dryer’s studio at the time of her death.
Dryer’s work has been exhibited extensively across the United States in institutions such as Boston’s Institute for Contemporary Art; Whitney Museum of Modern Art; and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Dryer’s work is included in the permanent collections of The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Museum of Modern Art, New York. READ MORE
