SID CHAFETZ | IDEALSMarch 4 - April 8, 2018Please join us for an Opening Reception & Presentation: Sunday, March 4, 1-3pmThis exhibition includes rare and unique works from the estate of postwar printmaker Sidney Chafetz. Chafetz was passionately interested in politics, justice, education, and literature and almost equally fond of puns, jokes, and bawdy humor. To him, being an artist meant “using satire to stab at pomposity, whether in my own field of academe or in our political world” and “honoring the great poets and writers who speak to the human condition.” These beliefs permeated his art.Chafetz came to teach at The Ohio State University in 1948 and was instrumental in establishing and nurturing the printmaking program in the Department of Art. His honors and awards included two Fulbright Fellowships, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, a MacDowell Fellowship, and a Ford Foundation grant. Private and corporate collections worldwide, and in such museums as the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the Morgan Library, the New York Public Library, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Columbus Museum of Art, a major repository of his work.Preview the exhibition: www.sherriegallerie.com/sid-chafetzSherrie Gallerie694 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215614-221-8580Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11-6 & Sun 1-4www.sherriegallerie.com
