Leslie Feely Fine Art is proud to present Hannelore Baron: Collages and Box Constructions, 1969 to 1985.
Hannelore Baron (1926 – 1987), a German-born artist who escaped from the Nazis and emigrated to New York City in 1941, conceived small-scale works of extraordinary impact. She used everyday materials to create delicate collages and mysterious box constructions that evoke both the fragility of life and the power of courage and endurance. These intimate compositions read as universal expressions of human emotion. Baron produced works of beautiful color with her very distinctive touch. Although Baron suffered from severe childhood trauma and debilitating anxiety as an adult, her work shows a joyful energy. Although deeply loved by people who know her work, she still remains an undiscovered treasure to others.
Hannelore Baron’s work was the subject of a retrospective organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in 2002, and a show at the Guggenheim Museum in 1989.
The opening reception will be held Tuesday, September 16 from 6:00 to 8:00, and the exhibition will run through Saturday, November 1.
