Irving Harper: A Mid-Century Mind at Play
Curated by Katharine Dufault & Jeff Taylor
September 14 - November 8, 2014
Opening reception: Sunday, September 14, 1-3pm

Irving Harper, a Rye resident and mid-century design genius, is The Rye Arts Center’s featured Famous Artist for Fall 2014.  Known professionally for his iconic contributions to the George Nelson Office, including the 1949 Ball Clock and 1965 Marshmallow Sofa, Harper is little known for his own private sculptural works which he created primarily with paper and Elmer’s glue.  His intricate and whimsical works are informed by Modern masters such as Picasso, Calder, Rothko, David Smith and Louise Nevelson. Harper’s paper sculptures and wall hangings -- which have never before been shared outside his home in such a fashion -- will make their debut in a solo retrospective exhibition in The Rye Arts Center’s Gallery Sept. 14-Nov. 8
