Beginning on September 17, Pyramid Atlantic Art Center will celebrate its 40th anniversary with an exhibition, Reflecting Back to the Future, featuring treasured archives by many significant artists, curated by Pyramid’s Founder Helen C. Frederick.
The works are part of a collection resulting from a printmaking and publishing residency that Pyramid operated from 1981–2007. Many of the prints have been in storage for decades, remaining unseen by the world at-large. Most of the works in the exhibition will be for sale, with proceeds going to Pyramid Atlantic Art Center’s Next 40 Fund. Forty artists will have work featured in the exhibition in the newly named Helen C. Frederick Gallery, while the rest of the collection will be available for viewing online.
Featured Artists: Ken Aptekar, Maria Barbosa, William Christenberry, Y. David Chung, Jan Cincera, Jerry Clapsaddle, Buck Downs, Bill Dunlap, Patricia Tobacco Forrester, Ke Francis, Susan J.
