FreedmanArt is pleased to present our next exhibition "Her Passionate Eye: Works From a Family Collection" opening on Thursday, September 22, 2011.
Drawn from the private collection of the late Millicent Freedman, with additional works from the extended family, this exhibition features intimate, (both in scale and feeling), paintings, works on paper, and sculpture, by seminal artists including; Milton Avery, Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, and Jules Olitski.
The exhibition also brings together a personal story of one woman, whose ardent collecting was inspired by a family friendship; an endearing and enduring bond of shared values, and abiding belief in art.
Millicent Freedman's sensitivity to the artistic world was imbued by her refined taste and her instinctive vision. She was ever drawn to beauty and felt increasingly engaged with works of art, which captured that sensibility.
These works, selectively gathered over a thirty year period, have graced a home filled by the love of family, they will now be viewed publicly; a fitting tribute to Millicent Freedman's "Passionate Eye."
"Her Passionate Eye: Works from a Family Collection" will continue through October 22nd.
