53 The Circle-Main Street
East Hampton, NY


Opening Reception: June 30th 6-8pm

Willem de Kooning. Untitled, oil on paper mounted on board. 15 x 19 c.1970's


         Keyes Art presents an extraordinary, can't-miss summer show blending legendary works with vibrant contemporary art, in our bright new gallery at 53 The Circle on Main Street, East Hampton. On view at this show, “About the Light,” will be the works of Willem de Kooning, Mary Abbott, Lester Johnson, and Darius Yektai.
         The iconic de Kooning was one of the pioneers of Abstract Expressionism and a founding father of Pop Art. He was acclaimed for his abstract still lifes, figures and vigorous colors.
         Abbott, his colleague, is also one of the premier artists of the Abstract Expressionist movement, whose signature is her sweeping brushwork and vivid palette. A pioneering artist, she was one of the few women in the Abstract Expressionist Movement. Her lineage traces back to John Adams, who was her great, great great-grandfather.
         Johnson was admired for his expressionist brushwork, creating unforgettable paintings of the human figure, his favorite subject. His style also seemed to capture the kinetic pace of New York City, where he lived.
         Yektai, an artist and sculptor, is widely known for his landscapes, large textural paintings of figures, powerful ocean waves, and vibrant flowers. He has been lauded for his poetic skill in capturing light in his paintings.
         This show will open June 30, with a reception from 6-8 p.m. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily
