“No one was doing modern painting, and here I came with my screwball ideas and shook everybody up,” Janet Lippincott (1918-2007) told the Albuquerque Journal in 1971. She was just starting one of the most triumphant decades of her career, with exhibitions across the nation and a growing array of prestigious awards. Still, the pioneer of Southwest Modernism never lost the rebellious spirit that pulled her through a decades-long battle for greatness.
Matthews Gallery is pleased to present Janet Lippincott: A 70-Year Retrospective, an unprecedented exhibition featuring over 100 artworks that span more than seven decades of her career. Sketchbooks, a scrapbook and other personal artifacts will appear in the show, along with a series of rare photographs that capture Lippincott’s fiery passion. The show opens Friday, December 2 from 5-7 pm and runs through December 22.
