$7,500 toward Icon Culture: The Late Paintings of Simon Gouverneur, organized by exhibitions director Andrea Pollan with a catalogue and lead essay by Dan Cameron. Gouverneur was born in New York City yet he 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.”
