In a tribute to one of the most influential figures in American art, Salmagundi is set to host a unique retrospective exhibition from October 2nd through November 3rd, 2023. The exhibition will feature 47 curated works of Burt Silverman, spanning over two decades (2001-2023), offering a rare opportunity for art lovers and educators to trace the artistic journey of this iconic artist.
Burt Silverman, often referred to as “the grandfather, a guiding presence” by countless artists who studied under him, has left an indelible mark on the world of art. Born in Brooklyn in 1928, Silverman’s career took off after graduating from Columbia University in 1946. His work has been exhibited worldwide, and he has been honored with 38 major prizes, including the Gold Medal of the Portrait Society of America in 2004.
The exhibition will be held in the spacious skylight gallery of the historic Salmagundi townhouse, showcasing Silverman’s artistic evolution and his signature style. In conjunction with the exhibition, Salmagundi will host a series of related events, lectures, and discussions, offering visitors a deeper insight into Silverman’s artistic process and his impact on the art world.
