As part of Master Drawings New York 2017, Mary-Anne Martin|Fine Art will exhibit a selection of works on paper by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington celebrating the centennial year of her birth. Carrington’s intelligence, humor, and technical skills are readily apparent in her drawings, which offer viewers an insight into her artistic process and vivid imagination. The show will include studies for paintings and prints, costume sketches and set designs, diary notes and political satire. These 30 works span Carrington’s career, and many are being exhibited publicly for the first time.
Master Drawings New York runs from January 21 through January 28. Please visit the Master Drawings website or call the gallery for hours. There is a preview at the gallery on January 20, from 4 to 8 pm. The Carrington exhibition at Mary-Anne Martin|Fine Art will continue through Wednesday, February 22.

A retrospective of Mexican artist Joy Laville’s work is on view at McKinney Avenue Contemporary in Dallas, Texas. Joy Laville: The First Fifty Years is guest curated by Salomon Grimberg and is accompanied by a catalogue with essays by Silvia Cherem, Isabella Rowe, and Salomon Grimberg, illuminating the life and work of Laville. The exhibition covers her work from 1962 through the present. In describing her work, Salomon Grimberg writes that “Apollinaire’s observation of how a river is ‘always different, always the same’ applies to Laville’s work. Only after studying her paintings does one begin to discern faintly how very dissimilar one is from another and how alike they seem to be.”
The exhibition runs through May 9, 2015. The gallery is open Wednesday – Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It is located at 3120 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, TX
The Galería de Arte Mexicano in Mexico City is also presenting an exhibition of Laville’s work, to coincide with the gallery’s 80th anniversary. GAM was the first gallery to represent Laville and championed her work. The exhibition includes over 30 works by Laville and runs through June 2015.
Joy Laville, Man Leaving on a Boat, 1986
As part of Master Drawings New York 2015, Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art will exhibit an original sketchbook by Gunther Gerzso, drawn in 1943-46 when the young artist was strongly influenced by the circle of Benjamin Péret and the European artists exiled in Mexico during the 1940s.
The book presents a striking record of Gerzso’s close ties to the Surrealists in Mexico, including Wolfgang Paalen, André Breton, Remedios Varo, César Moro and Alice Rahon. Their interest in pre-Columbian art became the foundation for Gerzso’s eventual style, a version of geometric abstraction inspired by the landscape and ancient culture of Mexico.
This notebook consists of 54 original drawings done by carbon transfer, some augmented with India ink, frottage and colored pencils. In addition there is an actual drawing done on carbon paper, which was discovered in the artist’s studio along with the sketchbook. This is the first time these works have been exhibited to the public.
Master Drawings New York runs from Saturday January 24 through Saturday January 31. Visit Master Drawings New York or call the gallery for hours. There is an opening at the gallery on January 23 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. The Gerzso exhibition continues at Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art through February 20, 2015.
