Exhibition History

1926

Grand Central School of Art, New York (organizer). Title unknown (traveling exhibition featuring paintings by members of the faculty). Late 1926 – February 1927. [At present, this exhibition is known only through an announcement in ARTnews, which states that “Archole Gorky” exhibited “a portrait and a study in still life.” According to the article, the exhibition tour included the following venues: Manchester Institute of Arts and Science, NH; Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ME; The Art Institute of Chicago, IL; Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, NY; Dayton Art Institute, OH; Cincinnati Museum Association, Columbus, OH; Gallery of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL; Art Gallery of Tampa, FL; Grand Central Galleries, New York. The article reports that the show concluded in New York in February, so it is likely that the multi-city tour began in late 1926, after Gorky’s teaching appointment at Grand Central commenced in September. See “Grand Central Faculty Show,” ARTnews 25 (19 February 1927), p. 4.]
