Curious by Nature: Works by Charley and Edie Harper (Halley & Klein Galleries)

Jun 23 – Nov 25, 2018

Featuring more than 80 prints, as well as original paintings, this exhibition provides a comprehensive look into the quirky, whimsical world of artists Charley and Edie Harper. Charley Harper is world famous for his signature style of ‘minimal realism,’ capturing the spirit of his subjects with elegantly spare visual elements. His work is nature-based, and over his career he created pieces for many environmental organizations, including the National Park Service, Everglades National Park, and the Cincinnati Zoo as well as a groundbreaking series of illustrations for Ford Times. Edie Harper worked in several mediums, including photography, sculpture, textiles, and jewelry. This exhibition includes examples of her prints, which also focus on natural subjects, particularly cats, as well as scenes from Biblical stories and childhood memories. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to view both of the Harpers’ works together, providing a truly immersive, curiosity provoking experience.
