October 6 – Over 100 works by psychedelic pop artist Peter Max are on display at CV Art and Frame, 110 S. Main St., Zionsville. The gallery is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The show, titled The Retrospective 1960 to 2021, features a section of Max posters from the 1960s and 1970s.
“We work with a company called Roadshow and they have exceptional art exhibitions from world-famous artists,” said Rhonda Crawshaw, CV gallery director. “This is actually our third Peter Max show. The first, Peter was actually here.”
CV Art and Frame Gallery owner Barbara Jennings said Max’s art is the hallmark look of a specific era in history. She said Max rose to fame in the 1960s, but the work is undated.
“He came from a graphic design background where there were strong lines,” she said. “Then you can see it evolves into less graphic and more pictorial.”
She added that all the parts are for sale.
“Some start in the $ 3,000 (range) and it goes up – I think our best is maybe $ 75,000,” she said. “There’s a pretty big range. What we’re showing here are all originals except for this place where we have his vintage poster from his personal collection.”
Jennings added that the posters are signed by Max, who is 84.
Crawshaw said the gallery also held an exhibition featuring original prints by Salvador Dalí. CV Art and Frame also produces personalized frames. The work on display is available for purchase. Many posters are signed and dated by the artist.
There will be two receptions in the gallery for the Max exhibition from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 9 and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on October 10. Entrance is free but reservations are required.
