Philip Pearlstein: A Legacy of Influence


Philip Pearlstein: A Legacy of Influence features work by legendary figure painter Pearlstein and those he has influenced through his career as an educator.


Philip Pearlstein is an influential American painter best known for Modernist Realism nudes. Cited by critics as the preeminent figure painter of the 1960s to 2000s, he led a revival in realist art. Pearlstein’s work is in over seventy museums’ collections in the United States, including the Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art amongst others. Since the mid-1950s Pearlstein has received several awards, most recently, the National Council of Arts Administrators Visual Artist Award; The Benjamin West Clinedinst Memorial Medal, The Artists Fellowship, Inc., New York, NY; and honorary doctorate degrees from Brooklyn College, NY, Center for Creative Studies and the College of Art & Design, Detroit, MI, and New York Academy of Arts, New York, NY. In 1988, he was elected into the National Academy of Design.


“Philip Pearlstein has been an active contributor to the international art scene for over 70 years,” says curator and artist Charles David Viera. “All of the artists in this exhibition have had the opportunity to study under Pearlstein at some point in their careers which allowed them to know him on a more personal level. I speak for all of them when I say that his full legacy of influence has yet to be felt.”

Wildflowers/Weeds: Watershed

- $65

As the vitality of summer flora and the colors of fall fade, leaving behind the dry skeletons of what once was, we celebrate the endless variety of structures and the fascinating shapes and textures of the weeds of winter. Join a Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed naturalist on an exploratory walking tour, followed by a drawing workshop led by Arts Council of Princeton Botanical Illustrator Ruth Councell. This exciting workshop will treat students to an illuminating look at last season’s wildflowers.
During a brisk 45 minutes morning walk on the Watershed Reserve trails, the naturalist will introduce a wide variety of plants, sharing their natural history while offering identification tips. Participants will also collect specimens during the walk for later use in the studio.
After lunch (please remember to bring a sack lunch; hot beverages will be provided), the group will spend time with specimens gathered in the morning, studying and sketching them under Ruth’s guidance. Then, as time permits, students will develop a finished piece based on one or more sketches. Topics such as tonal values, light on form, composition, and techniques for achieving various textures will be covered, with ample one-on-one support offered between instructor and student.

Participants should come dressed for wintery weather on the trails.
Registration is exclusively through the Arts Council of Princeton; for more information and to register, please visit www.artscouncilofprinceton.org. For more information about Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, visit www.thewatershed.org.
