NEW BERLIN – ‘Darryl Hughto: Diamonds’ is the first exhibition presented in the newly named Sam and Adele Golden Gallery located at the Golden Artist Colors, Inc. manufacturing facility in New Berlin.
The exhibition opened on Sept. 13 and runs through Nov. 21.
Painter Darryl Hughto has had over fifty one-person shows and is the recipient of the prestigious Theodoran Award and a Gottlieb Foundation grant.
The works in the exhibition were created thirty years ago when Hughto explored this series of abstract paintings combining raw canvas stained with liquid acrylic and thicker paint applications in an unique synthesis that explored how format, in this case a diamond shape within a rectangle, could liberate drawing and color in painting. This focused chapter in Hughto’s development presents him as an unmistakable, expressive and strongly independent artistic voice, a voice that continues to innovate to this day.
