Alan Sonfist “Surface Memory” Opening Reception

Alan Sonfist "Surface Memory" Opening ReceptionFriday, January 6, 7pm-9pm – Fredric Snitzer Gallery, 1540 NE Miami Ct, Miami

Fredric Snitzer Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of vintage works from the late 1960s and early 1970s by Alan Sonfist. On the forefront of the earth and land art movements with contemporaries such as Michael Heizer and Robert Smithson, these works exemplify a lost period in time and have never been shown commercially. Utilizing works on canvas and ceramic castings, Alan Sonfist creates a landmark in time; a relic detailing the innate artistry of the natural world. In contrast to his contemporaries, Sonfist pledged not to destroy the natural environment but to link city-dwellers and suburbanites to a nature that civilization destroyed. On view January 6th – 30th, 2017. @snitzergallery
