Venus Over Manhattan’s new location will be inaugurated with a debut showing of works by Richard Mayhew. The collection, which features over 20 works from the African American and Native American artist, is a fitting tribute to the painter, who continues to paint at 99 years old.
The display will draw on his exploration of nature, culture, memory, and identity, and the way these facets interact in his abstract landscapes. “Natural Order” will be on view from May 6 through June 17, 2023 at Venus Over Manhattan’s 39 Great Jones Street location in New York.
