The Ted Conrath Exhibition has been extended an extra month. The National Arts Club will open Ted’s artwork to the public for the first time on October 28th and the show will now run until January 3rd. The opening Gala remains on the 30th of October from 6 - 8, that’s a Wednesday for those looking into their schedule books. If you are coming in from out of town – just add an extra day to your weekend in New York City!!
For Theodore Conrath, this is more than an exhibition; it’s a homecoming. After WWII, Ted came to the city a country boy from North Dakota with generations of talent in his DNA and a world full of dreams. His first studio was at the National Arts Club. He won a couple of junior member awards and when his book of etchings with Madeline Mason was published to wide acclaim, he was inducted as a full member. He remained one from 1947 to 1954.
If last week’s news gets covered over like a prime coat of paint in the digital age, a lost artist from the ‘50s is like a relic deep under the ashes of Pompeii. A chance to see, up close and with your own eyes an artist who poured a lifetime of extreme highs and lows onto canvas, is a rare opportunity. Open to the public. Don’t miss it!!
