3 logo Lucien B. Day: A Life in Art Opening Reception
Time: 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Location: Highland Center for the Arts
Description: A retrospective of the work of Lucien B. Day (1916-2008). One of the key founders of the SoHo art movement, Day’s career spanned eight decades and his work in impressionist realism has been exhibited in countless museums and galleries. Day graduated from Yale University in 1939 with a B.A. in English and was voted Class Poet. He studied painting at Cranbrook Academy in Michigan and also served in World War II. As a young artist, Day exhibited regularly in both New York City and northern Vermont, maintaining artistic kinships and lengthy correspondence with noted artists including Fairfield Porter, John Marin, Alex Katz, Rackstraw Downs and Lois Dodd. In 1968, he founded the Green Mountain Gallery in Greenwich Village, which later moved and became one of the first galleries in SoHo. It would become a lively forum, retreat, and intellectual center for contemporary painters with realist tendencies during the eleven years Day was with the gallery. Day offered a new perspective in his work, combining scientific knowledge with creative action, demonstrating his principle that the eye sees different angles of space simultaneously, whether painting Northeast Kingdom landscapes or the steel constructions of a growing Manhattan. In 2006 Day received the Walter Cerf Lifetime Achievement Award from the Vermont Arts Council.
