1st Thursdays are always tons of fun, especially during the summer. Everyone is outside, wearing shorts and riding their bikes up and down State Street, making pit stops at their favorite galleries and museums.

Lucky for you, we have four truly excellent new exhibitions at Sullivan Goss that will make their grand opening on Thursday, July 7th from 5-8 PM.
Our vintage gallery will feature two new shows: mid-century modern paintings by RICHARD HAINES and an exhibition called SUNRISE SUNSET that celebrates solstice and the enduring allure of transitional light.
RICHARD HAINES: Subdividing the Space
[Richard Haines, Boom Town]
WPA era paintings by American Modernist Richard Haines are on display in the Vintage Gallery. Richard Haines: Subdividing the Space provides an insightful take on the reticulated, abstract style that characterized this mid-century artist’s dynamic style.
[Thomas McGlynn, Fall Sycamores]
These luminous landscape paintings celebrate the passage of night and day. The transitional quality of both sunrise and sunset have captivated artists for centuries. Each artist in this exhibition has brought their own distinct style to the table, whether it’s Impressionist, Tonalist, Realist or Fauvist, everyone sees these diaphanous moments in distinctly unique and illuminating ways.
Our contemporary gallery hosts two new shows: a guest exhibition–Artists and Architects on the Road: Works from University Art Museum.
And most especially, we are celebrating the Five Year Anniversary of our contemporary gallery space at 11 E. Anapamu (right next door to the vintage gallery). To honor this milestone we have chosen works from nine high-impact shows from the past five years. Past shows that will be highlighted: Neo-Icons, Americans At Play, 1957, Committed to Ink, The Urban Myth: Visions of the City, Dreamland: American Explorations into Surrealism, 100 Grand, The Stage and its People and The Long Green Line. Five At Eleven: The Emerging History of our New Gallery Space will be on display through August 28th.
