Spanierman Gallery, LLC is pleased to announce the opening on November 20, 2008 of the exhibition and sale, Balcomb Greene: A Retrospective. Organized with the assistance of Greene’s widow Terryn Greene, the exhibition reveals a career that spanned over six decades by an artist who was a forward-thinking iconoclast, intellectual, and individualist. Holding to his own perspective, Greene often turned in the opposite direction from the trends in the art world of his time, reflecting his commitment to his own passionate beliefs and his desire to face up to the risks and challenges that he set for himself. The exhibition is accompanied by a twenty-four-page catalogue with eighteen full-page color illustrations and an essay by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D.
