Princeton Day School Presents CELIA REISMAN: Hidden Spaces in the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery
The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery at Princeton Day School is pleased to present Celia Reisman: Hidden Spaces from January 14th through the 31st. There will be an opening reception with the artist on Tuesday, January 15th from 12:30-1:30 pm in the gallery.
Ms. Reisman paints her architectural vision of suburban landscapes, primarily around Philadelphia. “My aim is certainly not to replicate but instead to communicate the feeling of visual excitement that I felt when I first lay eyes on a place,” remarked Ms. Reisman about her paintings. Edward Sozanski of the Philadelphia Inquirer has praised Ms. Reisman’s work, noting that it “offers a lushly colored and geometrically harmonious balance between realism and abstraction.”
Represented by the Paul Thiebaud Gallery in New York and San Francisco, Ms. Reisman received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University and a Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Yale University. She was the recipient of the Hassam, Speicher, Betts, and Symons Fund Purchase award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2009. Ms. Reisman has served as Assistant Professor of Art at Swarthmore College, and is currently a Visiting Critic at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia, and resides in Merion, Pennsylvania.
Celia Reisman is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday when school is in session, and by appointment on weekends. For an appointment, please call (609) 924-6700 or visit www.pds.org. The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery is part of the Princeton Day School arts wing dedicated to photography, ceramics, architecture and dance, as well as woodworking, set-building and performance art spaces.
