'SHE' will present over a dozen paintings by Knox Martin, and in the words of catalog essayist Dr. William Fried, "The paintings in this exhibit are a set of variations on the theme of Woman, the continuation of a tradition dating from ancient representations of the female through the work of Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso and deKooning."

Knox Martin’s outdoor building-size murals 'Venus' (1970) and 'Woman With Bicycle' (1979) in New York City have been viewed over the decades by millions of people. Knox Martin's murals have been lauded as truly iconic examples of public art.

The SAGG is proud to bring these works to the Golden Artist Colors campus to affirm Knox Martin's sixty-year exhibition record and his dedication to art and teaching. Knox Martin has taught at Yale University, New York University, University of Minnesota, and The International School of Art in Italy. Knox continues to teach Master classes at the Art Students League of New York.

In October Knox Martin will be recognized by the Artists' Fellowship, Inc. with the Benjamin West Clinedinst Memorial Medal. This award is given for the achievement of exceptional artistic merit. The medal was established in 1947 to commemorate Benjamin West Clinedinst's dedication to the fundamental and traditional principles of art, his interest in his fellow artists and his devotion to the Fellowship.

Knox Martin is a member of the National Academy and has works in numerous private and public collections around the world, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

A catalog of the 'SHE' exhibition will be available, featuring an essay entitled, "SHE: An Exhibit by Knox Martin" by William Fried, Ph.D., FIPA. To view 'SHE' online and to learn more about the Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (SAGG), go to www.thesagg.org .

VELOCITY is an exhibition of selected works by New York painter Larry Poons, opening with a reception for the artist from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Friday August 19, at The Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (The SAGG) at Golden Artist Colors, Inc., 188 Bell Road, New Berlin, NY. The exhibition continues through November 19, 2011.

The long walls and unimpeded views at The SAGG have allowed for several of Poons's large-scale works to be included in the exhibition. VELOCITY features paintings created between 1975 and 2009.

Poons has exhibited his paintings around the world in museums and commercial galleries for more than five decades. During his long painting experience, Poons has been unafraid to engage issues of monumental scale and vigorous paint applications for his expressive purpose. He has undergone stylistic transformations that turned away from identifiable signature painting methods and plunged directly into radically different approaches to satisfy his own needs for forward motion.

The SAGG is proud to bring these works to the Golden Artist Colors' campus to affirm Larry Poons's long and influential career as a painter. Poons is represented in New York City by the Danese Gallery and by the Loretta Howard Gallery. A catalog of the VELOCITY exhibition will be available, featuring an essay entitled, "Larry Poons: Five Decades" by critic Karen Wilkin. To view VELOCITY online and to learn more about the Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (SAGG), go to www.thesagg.org.

Hapening the same weekend, will be the preview of the new artist in residence space. In 2008 the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation began its commitment to providing living and workspace opportunities for artists, with the development of an artist in residence space in a hundred year old barn, just a 5 minute walk from the Golden Artist Colors' facility.

Additional details about the Golden Foundation Residency can be found at www.goldenfoundation.org. For more information about Golden Artist Colors, go to www.goldenpaints.com.

The Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (SAGG) is pleased to present an exhibition entitled, "Carl Plansky and Friends" at the Golden Artist Colors' facility in New Berlin, N.Y. The exhibition opening will be on Saturday, September 25 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and runs through November 20, 2010.

This exhibition celebrates the legacy of painter Carl Plansky, founder of Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors, as both artist and paintmaker. Plansky's works will be displayed along with several of his most intimate and talented artist 'Friends,' including Pat Passlof, Milton Resnick, Jake Berthot, Susanna Coffey, Cora Cohen, Bill Jensen, Margrit Lewczuk, Judith Linhares, and Mary Jo Vath.

In the 1980s, Carl acquired a milling machine from painter Milton Resnick and immersed himself in the technology of paintmaking. In short order, his explorations blossomed into the full scale paintmaking enterprise that became Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors. The burgeoning art milieu of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, provided fertile ground for Carl to develop his unique approach to making oil paints. Carl reveled in searching out and sourcing rare pigments. His own needs as a painter motivated the search as well as the requirements of growing the color line for Williamsburg Handmade Oils.

As a painter, Carl was able to imbue time-honored pictorial subjects: still life, landscape and figuration, with a vigor and energy that was also informed by his familiarity with the materiality and unique characteristics of the paints that he created.

Carl Plansky, at the height of his artistic powers, died on October 10, 2009. It is with tremendous pride and honor that Golden Artist Colors continues the legacy of Williamsburg Oils that Carl Plansky began over 25 years ago. This exhibition is dedicated to Carl and to all of his friends with whom he shared an artistic vision.

'Darryl Hughto: Diamonds' is the first exhibition presented in the newly named Sam and Adele Golden Gallery located at the Golden Artist Colors, Inc. manufacturing facility in New Berlin, NY.

The exhibition opens on Sunday, September 13 with a reception for the artist from 3 PM to 6PM and runs through Saturday November 21, 2009.

Painter Darryl Hughto has had over fifty one person shows and is the recipient of the prestigious Theodoran Award and a Gottlieb Foundation grant.

The works in the exhibition were created thirty years ago when Hughto explored this series of abstract paintings combining raw canvas stained with liquid acrylic and thicker paint applications in an unique synthesis that explored how format, in this case a diamond shape within a rectangle, could liberate drawing and color in painting. This focused chapter in Hughto's development presents him as an unmistakable, expressive and strongly independent artistic voice, a voice that continues to innovate to this day.

These paintings have not been presented formally for decades and this exhibition will provide an opportunity for those familiar with Hughto's recent approach to painting in landscape, still life and figuration to trace the artist's early development. In the Diamonds, as featured in this exhibition, Hughto deftly played with the convention of figure/ground in painting as his recent work has deployed abstract elements to contemporize their subjects.

An illustrated catalog accompanying the exhibition features a text written by Steven Kern, Director of the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, NY.

Residing in Central New York, Hughto and his wife, the painter Susan Roth, have been collaborators with Golden Artist Colors since the inception of the company.
