Press Release

PRINCETON, NJ – December 6, 2016 - The Arts Council of Princeton presents Philip Pearlstein: A Legacy of Influence, a group exhibition featuring legendary figure painter Pearlstein and those he has influenced through his career as an artist and educator. Visitors can expect original works from artists Philip Pearlstein, Janet Fish, Stephen Lorber, Charles David Viera, Altoon Sultan, Tony Phillips, George Nick, Lorraine Shemesh, and Thomas Corey.

“Philip Pearlstein has been an active contributor to the international art scene for over 70 years,” says curator and artist Charles David Viera. “All of the artists in this exhibition have had the opportunity to study under Pearlstein at some point in their careers which allowed them to know him on a more personal level. I speak for all of them when I say that his full legacy of influence has yet to be felt.”

Featured artist Janet Fish says of Pearlstein, “What has stuck with me was his insistence that we take a hard and rigorous look at the world that is front of our eyes.”

A Legacy of Influence will be on view in the Arts Council’s Taplin Gallery from January 7 – March 25, 2017, with an Opening Reception on Saturday, January 7 from 4-6pm and a Gallery Talk with Philip Pearlstein on Saturday, February 18 at 2pm.
