“A Curve of Color: Art and Fashion of Samuel Butnik and Bonnie Cashin
The gallery’s third show, “A Curve of Color: Art and Fashion of Samuel Butnik and Bonnie Cashin,” is a collaboration between the esteemed nonprofit organizations the Western Reserve Historical Society and the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve. The show will be on display from January 5 through February 23, and the public is invited to the opening reception next Thursday, January 12, from 5 - 7 p.m.
The combination of work from Samuel Butnik (1920-2004) and Bonnie Cashin (1908-2000) offers a fascinating study of color. A celebrated painter and Cleveland-native, Butnik is known for his abstract geometric paintings, many of which were inspired by landscapes he experienced as he traveled and lived around the world. The upcoming exhibit boldly stages Butnik’s interaction of color alongside Cashin’s richly-hued garments. Cashin is best-known for her work with the Coach handbag company, but historians also credit her with the modern concept of layering clothing.
