Audrey Flack: Recent Pages from an Ancient Past features a compilation of Flack's paintings spanning the years from the 1960s through the 1980s.  While Flack's photo realist paintings are represented in the collections of major museums throughout the world, some of the paintings featured in this exhibit are from private collections and have not been seen before in a public exhibition. Flack, born in New York in 1931, lives and works in New York. When the Museum of Modern Art acquired a painting by Flack, it was the first photorealist work acquired by the museum. Among her public commissions is a monumental gateway to the city of Rock Hill, South Carolina, consisting of four twenty-foot tall bronze figures on granite pedestals. She has taught and lectured extensively.  There are numerous books on her work and Flack is the author of Art and Soul: Notes on Creating (Compass).  Flack delivered the commencement address and received an honorary doctorate at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in May 2012.

This spring at Rutgers, along with the exhibition and celebration of Flack and her work at Mason Gross Galleries, Flack was also named the 2011-2012 Estelle Lebowitz Visiting Artist in Residence for the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series. That residency included multiple lectures and an exhibition featuring her works on paper, Metamorphoses: Pictures by Audrey Flack, which will be on view from January 18 - June 30, 2012, at the Mabel Smith Douglass Library. An exhibition catalog featuring an essay by Helen Molesworth, Chief Curator at the Institute for Contemporary Art, Boston, and images from both Rutgers exhibitions is available for purchase.
