American artist Andy Warhol is best known for his colorful pop art, but there’s another side to his work that’s more subdued. His lesser-known sketches, abstract paintings, self-portraits, and illustrations are on view this month at the Spencer Gallery at Lighthouse ArtCenter. “WARHOL! WARHOL! WARHOL!” opens January 13, featuring more than 20 pieces of original art by the artist, on loan from the private collections of Beth Rudin DeWoody and Marshall Fields.
To complement the exhibition, “Ray Gross Pop Art Sculpture”—an homage to Warhol’s pop art with a life-sized Harley-Davidson made of porcelain—will be shown in the Shorr Gallery, where visitors can also browse James Thurman’s “Paper Alchemy” show of patented Thurmanite art. While the original Warhol pieces will not be for sale, the rest of the work on display will be available for purchase. There will also be a Pop Art Jewelry Show & Sale with Warhol-inspired necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, and broaches created by artists from across the country.
