Since October 1964, The Larry Aldrich Museum has been dedicated to the exhibition of the most recent developments in the visual arts of our time. The Museum has striven always to maintain the highest standard of excellence in the quality of its exhibitions. Therefore, it is extremely pleased, grateful, and fortunate to present the John G. Powers Collection of Contemporary Art this fall.
John Powers’ taste in collecting is impeccable, highly sensitive, and astoundingly comprehensive. The twenty-one works by Wilem DeKooning brilliantly portray this fact. His courage in exploring innovations and new modes of expression is enviable. His interest in helping to promote the work of young unknown artists struggling for recognition has been of inestimable value to the New York art scene.
The museum is indeed honored to present the exciting John G. Powers Collection, which portrays so poignantly the varied aspects of the living art today.
