Wild and Brilliant: The Martha Jackson Gallery and Post-War Art – Hollis Taggart

ArtsGazing, November 19, 2021

One of the more interesting group shows of the season is a homage to an individual: the collector and gallerist Martha Jackson. Her training in art history, combined with an open mind regarding post-war experimental and international artists, led to opening a gallery in New York City in 1953. Jackson featured both new and more established artists from the US and Europe, working in a wide range of styles and movements, often providing their first New York exhibit, leading to attention from critics, collectors, and museums. In Wild and Brilliant: The Martha Jackson Gallery and Post-War Art (November 18 – December 30) visitors will see examples of her client roster such as Karl Appel, Sam Francis, Grace Hartigan, Willem de Kooning, and Louise Nevelson; in addition, several artworks originally shown in the gallery will be on view, as well as archival material from the Martha Jackson Gallery Archives at SUNY University at Buffalo, Anderson Gallery.
