Spanierman Modern is pleased to announce the opening on February 9, 2010 of Journeys: The Art of Betty Parsons . Parsons's career as a legendary art dealer who represented many of the important avant-garde artists of the mid-twentieth century has often overshadowed a consideration of her own art. This oversight has been remedied in the last decade and a half when several exhibitions and publications have been devoted to Parsons's oeuvre, revealing its originality and her distinctive artistic voice. Following shows held at the Pollock-Krasner House, East Hampton, New York (1992), the Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington, New York (1999), the Naples Museum of Art, Florida (2005), and Spanierman Modern (2008), the present exhibition focuses on a particular facet of Parsons's work, the relationship of her paintings and sculptures to her travels in America and abroad......
