Gloria Vanderbilt: April 20 – June 3, 2016

The 1stdibs Gallery at 200 Lex hosts a retrospective exhibition of Gloria Vanderbilt’s work from April 20 – June 3, 2016. In conjunction with HBO’s “Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper,” film by Liz Garbus and their book “The Rainbow Comes and Goes; A Mother and Son on Life, Love, and Loss,” the exhibition showcases the expansive life of Gloria Vanderbilt, the American artist, author, actress, heiress, and socialite.

Rendered in deep blues, dusty pinks, and soft lavenders, each painting speaks to Ms. Vanderbilt’s vivid imagination, conjuring up ethereal images of dreaming girls, long forgotten memories, and mysterious places in the past.

Often her images are channeled in dreams which find expression in her paintings often in a narrative quality which has been shuffled around in the kaleidoscope of her imagination to find themselves in colors and patterns that sustain her. The exhibition includes a selection of her “Dream Boxes”.

The retrospective is on view to the public at the 1stdibs gallery on the 10th floor.
