July 1, 2008, New York - New Acquisitions, (July 10 through August 22, 2008) will showcase thirty works new to the gallery in the last year, and will include large and small-scale paintings, dramatic sculpture and important drawings by Forum Gallery roster artists and twentieth century and contemporary masters.
This video features works by Steven Assael, Paul Fenniak, Linden Frederick, Edward Hopper, Michael Leonard, Alan Magee, Odd Nerdrum, Larry Rivers, Max Weber, Tom Wesselmann, and Francisco Zúñiga.
Concurrently, running from July 10 through September 6, 2008 Forum Gallery will offer the rare opportunity to see a separate exhibition of eleven of renowned Paris-based artist Charles Matton's box constructions, each an exquisitely detailed miniature recreation of a real or imagined location. Matton has said of his works: "I create two kinds of boxes: those whose purpose is to recreate an atmosphere that has delighted me, a memory whose existence I wish to perpetuate; and the more objective pieces that are the result of a detailed examination of the "realistic truth" of a certain place." Painstakingly crafted from wood, mirrors, moving pictures and wallpaper, depictions of the studios of a Classical Sculptor, of libraries and of a pianist performing Debussy will be on view alongside Matton's Hommages to James Joyce, Edward Hopper, and Lucian Freud.
