Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Robert Kushner

Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Flora Dreams, featuring paintings and works on paper by Robert Kushner, on view through Apr. 9, 2011.

Kushner emerged on the American art scene in the early 1970s and quickly became known for his richly textured and opulent paintings. Since the late 1980s his artistic focus has been centered around flowers and plant forms. Kushner frequently visits botanical gardens for inspiration, often scheduling trips in order to view flowers of particular interest at their peak.

Kushner has exhibited extensively and his work can be found in the collections of many prestigious institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, the Tate Gallery in London and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
