About the Gallery
Van Doren Waxter presents a cross generational program reflecting the shared vision of John Van Doren, Dorsey Waxter, and Elizabeth Sadeghi. It brings together foundations and estates with a roster of emerging and international artists specializing in artists working from the post WW II era to the present with an emphasis on American Abstraction.  The gallery represents the James Brooks Foundation, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, the Tom Fairs Estate, the Harvey Quaytman Trust, and the Hedda Sterne Foundation.  Contemporary artists include Caetano de Almeida, Marsha Cottrell, TM Davy, Jeronimo Elespe, Volker Hüller, Brian Rochefort, Jackie Saccoccio and Daisy Youngblood.  Additionally, the gallery handles secondary market work specializing in John Chamberlain, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Ellsworth Kelly, Lee Krasner, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frank Stella, Wayne Thiebaud, and Anne Truitt, among others.  The combined program positions contemporary artists who are actively creating new work within the context of historical artists.

About the Presentation
Van Doren Waxter will explore the common thread of gesturalism and observation among three American women artists: Rosemarie Beck, Zoe Longfield, and Vivian Springford. Their works embody a spirit of looking at people and landscape before any stylistic categorization applied to them as abstract or expressionist painters. In diverse ways, each of these artists experimented with a wide range of media, creating unique bodies of work with a heightened sense of materiality.
