Paintings, Photographs, Friendship

The uncertain boundary that separates writers and artists gains a special emphasis in Paintings, Photographs, Friendship - an exciting new show coming to FRANK Gallery this September. This very special, month long exhibition features the painting and photography of two good friends who are each in their own way, blurring the boundary of writer and artist - Clyde Edgerton and John Rosenthal.

Paintings, Photographs, Friendship represents the playful tension between friendship and art. “I met Clyde,” Rosenthal said, “on the day that Raney was published, over thirty years ago. Since then I’ve read everything he’s written. He’s a sly funny writer who is unafraid of darkness. If you’re an artist yourself, he’s a good friend to have. Always out there making something good happen—books, music, songs, paintings. We need to be inspired by our friends.”

FRANK will be presenting John Rosenthal’s “Museum Studies” series and Clyde Edgerton’s paintings—including renderings of his favorite Rosenthal photographs.
