Press release from Giampietro Gallery

Fred Giampietro Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Don Voisine. The exhibition is Don Voisine's first solo show at the gallery. The show will be on view from Jan. 10—Mar. 1, with an opening reception on Fri., Jan. 10, from 6—8 p.m.

Don Voisine: "Flicker"
Voisine's hard-edged, overlapping, tilted-shaped abstractions, with interplays of matt and glossy surfaces, invite viewers to meditate on the relationship between form and texture. His powerful but often small-scaled work seems larger than life. Much like the work of sculptors such as Nonas, Andre and Serra, Voisine's paintings typically interact with and energize the spaces they occupy. His meticulous work expands on the hard-edged, purely abstract work of the modern masters and seems both fresh and timely.

Don Voisine has been exhibiting his work nationally and internationally since the 1970’s. His recent exhibitions include group shows at the National Academy Museum in New York, the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA, the Hôtel de Sauroy in Paris, Galerie Lindner in Vienna, as well as solo exhibitions at Alejandra von Hartz Gallery in Miami and Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco. Voisine has been awarded many prestigious awards including the Hassam, Speicher Betts and Symonds Fund Purchase Award from American Academy of Arts and Letters in NY, The Portland Museum of Art Biennial Purchase Prize, the Henry Ward Ranger Fund Purcahse Award from the National Academy Museum in New York and an Honorary BFA from Maine College of Art.

The exhibition will take place at the Fred Giampietro Gallery’s new downtown location, 91 Orange St., in the historic 9th-Square district. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 AM to 6 PM.
