Augen Gallery: Celebrating 35 Years of Prints

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday June 24
Augen DeSoto
716 NW Davis St.
 
To celebrate its 35th anniversary, Augen Gallery is mounting an exhibition of prints by the same artists featured in its inaugural show back in 1979: Jim Dine, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Frank Stella and Andy Warhol. Of these six artists, Lichtenstein’s work holds up the best. Although he’s most associated with his comics-influenced work, he actually deployed his trademark Ben-Day dots across an impressive array of stylistic periods, never letting his approach calcify the way artists such as Joan Miró did. Restlessly inventive, he tackled big subjects (the relationship between pop culture and fine art, the legacy of Abstract Expressionism, the Asian landscape) with consistent wit and imagination. Far from a one-trick pony, Lichtenstein was an eminently responsive visual thinker, as the prints at Augen attest. Through June 28.
