Congdon Reviewed in AIA

A Dennis Congdon’s (Professor, Painting) exhibit at the CUE Art Foundation was recently reviewed in Art in America.

“Rome is a city that can morph from ancient to modern at the turn of a corner….Dennis Congdon’s first solo exhibition in New York City, curated by the artist Stanley Whitney, presented a group of captivating paintings that approach Rome’s magnificent pileup of civilization with a deliciously light touch.

“The paintings are…fresh, almost giddy, paeans to a collective imagination that barely persists. Neither history paintings nor landscapes, they function more like candy-colored billboards advertising a stroll through a scenic archaeological dig or a verdant classical garden.” – Art in America
