SHOW AND TELL
The personal stories of objects
April 9th, 2014
Lily’s at The Roger Smith Hotel
3 storytellers are invited to bring an object that has an extraordinary personal story attached to it.
The selected participants hail from a broad spectrum of professional disciplines, and their chosen objects represent equally diverse fields of interest.
Chuck Webster’s lyrical abstractions loosely refer to animals, plants, architecture, and human bodies. His dynamic compositions, focusing on a central image as it vibrates against an expressive and colorful background, elicit comparisons to Paul Klee, late Matisse, and outsider artist Forrest Bess. Webster’s work is in the permanent collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; the Dallas Museum of Art, TX; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; and the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD, among other institutions. Chuck Webster lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
