The Fritz Gallery is pleased to present SUMMER NIGHTS, an exhibition featuring artists Rob Pruitt, Steve Manolis, Kasha McKee, Red Grooms, Robert Rauschenberg, William King, Nathan Slate Joseph, Mark Flood, Red Grooms and Karlos Perez. Summer nights are mixed with a variety of feelings and experiences: no longer defined by the hectic hustle of work, it can be a time that evokes escape, travel, and relaxation. Filled with vibrant color, spontaneous mark making, textural and minimal approaches, this exhibition embodies all that is summer, alluding to the ocean and the sun, tropical landscapes, patriotism, and of course, the nightlife that summer affords.
