DARIEN, Conn. - A newly curated retrospective collection by legendary artist Peter Max will be on exhibition and available for acquisition at the Geary Gallery in Darien. Exhibit previews begin April 26 and extend through May 4.

The gallery welcomes all Peter Max enthusiasts and collectors as their invited guests for special live appearances by the artist.

Peter Max has assembled a collection of his greatest and most-revered imagery spanning four decades: from his iconic Pop Art designs commemorating Woodstock to the 2013 unveiling of his design for the cruise ship Breakaway and the new exquisite Marilyn series. This new exhibition speaks to the evolution and maturation of America’s most popular living artist.

This carefully curated collection is a museum-like retrospective of Max’s works: Peter Max has painted for five U.S. presidents and his art is on display in Presidential Libraries and in U.S. Embassies across the globe. He has been the official artist of five NFL Super Bowls, the 2006 Olympics, the World Cup USA, The World Series, The U.S. Open, The Indy 500, The NYC Marathon and The Kentucky Derby.

Peter Max emerged as a powerful force in the art world from the prestigious Art Students League, alongside such artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollack, Cy Twombly and Norman Rockwell. The League was a formative influence on these artists’ innovative artwork, and has led each and every one to greatness and an important legacy in history

Artwork is available for acquisition. The public is invited to meet the artist receptions on Saturday, May 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sunday, May 4, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Admission for all registered guests is free. RSVPs are required, by calling 866-900-6699 or emailing lesley@roadshowcompany.com
