Opens May 23 - June 11, 2011
New York artist Arthur Carter had a long and successful career in investment banking before founding The Litchfield County Times and The New York Observer. He was also publisher of both The Nation magazine and The East Hampton Star. Arthur Carter’s career as a sculptor emerged from his work and interest in the graphic design of his newspapers. He was soon producing maquettes of wood, clay, and copper wire, which evolved into larger constructions in silicon bronze and stainless steel — a number of which are on permanent public display in New York City. Mr. Carter maintains a production facility in Roxbury, CT, as well as a gallery and design studio in New York City.
Arthur Carter has been a featured solo artist at many galleries, including the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, TN, and New York University’s Grey Art Gallery. In 2009 Harry N. Abrams published a comprehensive collection of his work, Arthur Carter: Sculptures, Paintings, and Drawings. Later this year Arthur Carter’s Orthogonal series will move to The New Britain Museum of American Art in CT.
Arthur Carter: Orthogonals is a benefit exhibition for NYU Steinhardt’s 80WSE Galleries on view from May 24 - June 11, 2011. Proceeds from the sale of Mr. Carter’s works will help support the gallery’s exhibitions, publications, and educational programs.
