$7,000 to include work by the painter in the group exhibition Back to the Future with accompanying catalogue and related public programs, organized by museum director Pamela Ambrose and guest curator Carol Celentano. Born in New York City, Gouverneur painted and taught in several European and East Coast cities from the 1960s through the 1980s. His hard-edged abstract and patterned paintings, exploring communication and symbolic language, have been called the equivalent of a “visual Esperanto.”
