About John Greene –  John D. Greene focuses on creating his own reality, painting imagined rather than real landscapes, recreating long-forgotten images and vistas. As John explains it, “painting is about paint. Color, texture, the joy of putting it on or scraping it off”. Helen A. Harrison of the New York Times calls John Greene’s color field paintings, “intense”.

About Alexander Rutsch – Alexander Rutsch’s early years were spent in France where he collaborated with his contemporaries, Picasso and Dali. These collaborations are strongly seen in several paintings throughout our gallery, including a mixed media portrait of Dali created during a sitting at the St. Regis, New York in 1969. His work is held in the collections of Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Walter Cronkite, Salvador Dali, Sammy Davis Jr, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Paris’ Musée d’Art Moderne, and New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

A Retrospective of Alexander Rutsch Opening Reception


transFORM Gallery broke all art opening night attendance and sales records during our Saturday, June 13th, Alexander Rutsch Retrospective reception. Understandably, this was a result of Alexander’s international notoriety and local influence as an artist.

transFORM Art Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill and Alexander’s daughter Alexi Brock, lead the presentation reminiscing about her father’s early background and his time spent in France where he collaborated with his contemporaries, Picasso and Dali.  These collaborations are strongly seen in several paintings throughout our gallery.

This show is a great opportunity to view museum quality work as evidenced by the mixed media portrait of Dali created during a sitting at the St. Regis, New York in 1969. Rutsch’s work is collected worldwide and we are thrilled to make it available to the local audience.

An artist in her own right, Alexander’s wife, Kathy Rutsch, also contributed ceramic arts and paintings to this show.

We think, with Alexander’s musical background, he would have appreciated musicians Eric Katz and Charlie Rhyner, for setting the mood and providing jazz entertainment throughout the night.

This unique show runs through August 30, 2015.
