The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation partnered with Spoke Art Gallery to curate a pop-up exhibition called “Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless” that will show in the architect’s Taliesin West home on June 15 and 16.
The exhibition will feature original artwork from more than a dozen artists who have depicted Wright’s buildings in the style of Works Progress Administration travel posters from the 1930s.
In one poster, artist Alison King renders Taliesin West in cutout form with a call to action: “Experience Fellowship at Taliesin West.” In another Rory Kurtz illustrates Taliesin East awash in twilight. The bold, graphic images features will all be screen-printed and for sale with prices starting at $50.
“Keeping in mind Wright’s personal interest in affordable housing, we’ve extended that interest to reflect in the show by focusing specifically on artists who specialize in the medium of serigraphy,” says Ken Harman Hashimoto, Spoke Art Gallery curator. “This allows us to create limited edition screen printed works that are both handmade and affordable, a duality that I hope Wright would have appreciated.”
After the show’s short run in Scottsdale, Arizona, it will finish up with an exhibition at Hashimoto Gallery in New York City on July 27 and 28.
