Remembering a Friend: Ray K. Metzker Dies at 83

Posted By Blog User, Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Ray K. Metzker was a man of reinvention.  His varying series and projects through his nearly 60-year career strove to investigate new angles, techniques, and approaches.  He employed composites, multiple exposure, superimposition, juxtaposition, and solarization, among other alternative techniques.  Critics and collectors were known to remark that new works didn't feel like his when indeed they were.   Metzker attended the Institute of Design in Chicago, and inherited an avant-garde approach to the media.  AIPAD member Laurence Miller Gallery had mounted an exhibition, ONE AND ONLY: Unique photographs and works on paper, to mark the artist's 83rd birthday; the artist passed while it was on view.  ONE AND ONLY is an apt name for the exhibition and, in light of the artist's passing, is only now more poignant.  Included works are all unique, and were drawn from the artist's oeuvre from 1957 onward.    


An article of remembrance was published in the New York Times with remarks from Laurence Miller.  Read that story here.


To learn more about the ONE AND ONLY exhibition on view through October 25, please visit Laurence Miller Gallery.

Jazz Lives:  The Photographs of
Lee Friedlander and Milt Hinton

Through September 7, 2014

This exhibition brings together Lee Friedlander's and Milt Hinton's extraordinary images, capturing the people, spirit, and history of jazz.  Friedlander's photographs of New Orleans musicians were made during a series of visits to the city from the late 1950's to the 1990's.  Renowned bassist Milt Hinton's photos were shot over the course of his musical career, which spanned much of the 20'th century, and offer an insider's view of the jazz scene.  

For more information on this exhibition, please visit Yale University Art Gallery.

Works by Lee Friedlander available through aipad member galleries Terry Etherton Gallery, Fraenkel Gallery, Pace/MacGill Gallery, and Laurence Miller Gallery, among others.
