Opening Reception: Friday, October 7th 5:30 – 7:30pm
Coinciding with our upcoming exhibition is the release of the long anticipated monograph Warren Rohrer, co-published by Locks Art Publications and the Allentown Art Museum. Philosopher and art critic David Carrier traces Rohrer’s trajectory over 40 years and describes the highly unorthodox arc of his life, from Mennonite stock in rural Pennsylvania to prominence as an exceptional abstract painter of the late 20th century. Designed by Takashi Matsumoto, the book includes 120 beautifully reproduced paintings, drawings, and sketchbooks, and an illustrated chronology, representing the most comprehensive presentation of Rohrer’s life and work to date.
