      Peter Bradley: New Work

      The Oyster Point Gallery in collaboration with Emerge Gallery in Saugerties, NJ is extremely pleased to welcome Peter Bradley in his first solo exhibition in New Jersey. Ellen Martin, Oyster Point Curator and Robert Langdon, Emerge Gallery owner, are thrilled to be working together again to bring this exhibition to fruition. They met several years ago while working on the Red Bank Art Walks.

      Peter Bradley has had a long and storied career. In 1968, as Associate Director of the prestigious Perls Galleries, he was one of the first black art dealers in the United States. In 1971 Peter curated The De Luxe Show in Houston at the request of John de Menil. In 1972 he had his first of six exhibits at André Emmerich.

      But foremost, Peter is an artist – a sculptor and a painter. Over a 50+ year career his paintings have ranged from monochromatic, serene spray paintings to bold, cacophonous pieces replete with textures, fearless color choices, and broad gestures all built on a base of new raw canvas stained with Golden acrylic paints and mediums. He has supported Golden products since their inception and through their use continues to advance the language of abstraction and color field painting.

      Peter’s work is in the permanent collections of a number of museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. In 2017 Bradley completed an Artist in Residence at the Squire Foundation.

      With the recent interest in black artists over 70, attention to Peter Bradley’s work and career is timely and significant. He continues to challenge his use of color and texture while painting daily at his home studio in a historic 18th Century stone house in Saugerties, NY.

      The exhibit will open on September 6, 2019 from 6 – 8 p.m. and run through November 3, 2019. At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 5, 2019, Ellen Martin will be conversing with Bradley about his work and life.
