In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the death of Ida Kohlmeyer in January 1997, the Arthur Roger Gallery is presenting a special exhibition of the artist’s work. The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures and a special late wall sculpture by the artist. Several of Ida Kohlmeyer’s works in the commemorative exhibition have never been exhibited before but are being made available for the first time from her estate. The Kohlmeyer exhibition will be on view from January 6th – February 24th in the gallery’s showroom at the Arthur Roger Gallery, 432 Julia Street. An opening reception will be hosted by the gallery on Saturday, January 6th from 6 to 8 pm.
Ida Kohlmeyer’s strong reputation as an artist has continued to grow since her death. The bright calligraphic arrangements in her signature works continue to convey her remarkable abiding exuberance.
