Peter Bradley: New Work Opening Reception

Oyster Point Hotel

146 Bodman Place
Red Bank, NJ 07701

The multi-faceted Peter Bradley has had a long and storied career. In 1968, as Associate Director of the prestigious Perls Galleries, he was one of the country’s first black art dealers. In 1971 at 31, Peter curated The De Luxe Show in Houston at the request of John de Menil. In 1972, he had his first of six shows at Andre Emmerich. But foremost, Peter is both a sculptor and a painter. Over a 50+ year career his paintings have ranged from monochromatic, serene spray paintings to bold, cacophonous pieces replete with textures, fearless color choices, and broad gestures built on a base of raw canvas he had stained with acrylic paints. He has supported Golden products since their inception and with their use continues to advance the language of color field and abstract art. Peter’s work is in the permanent collections of a number of museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. In 2017 Bradley completed an Artist in Residence at the Squire Foundation. With the recent interest in black artists over 70, attention to Peter Bradley’s work and career is timely and significant. He continues to challenge his use of color and texture and paint daily at his home studio in a historic 18th Century stone house in Saugerties, NY. Oyster Point Gallery Curator Ellen Martin, in collaboration with Emerge Gallery of Saugerties, NY, is pleased to present a collection of new work by Peter Bradley. The exhibit will open on September 6, 2019 from 6 �" 8 p.m. and run through November 3, 2019. At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 5, 2019, Ellen Martin will be conversing with Bradley about his work and life.
