A prominent Virginia artist with a long record of national and international exhibitions, Ray Kass is well known not only for the quality and breadth of his art but as a pivotal, even catalytic figure who over the years brought luminaries of the art world, including John Cage, to our region and influenced generations of artists. This exhibition highlights exemplary work from Kass’ prolific career, ranging from his large-scale, multi-panel Polyptych (1961-2003) paintings to his most recent Still Lifes (2015-2018), created with stencils in an inventive layering of water media, oil emulsion, and dry pigment on rag paper.

Concurrent Exhibitions:

  • Ray Kass: Silk and Water, Perspective Gallery, January 16-March 3, 2018
  • Primary Elements: Foundational Works by Ray Kass, Armory Gallery, January 18-February 16, 2018
