Pier Wright: Recent Works

For lovers of painting, the first look at Pier Wright’s small abstract works is exciting. Bold strokes and fields of luscious color burst across the surface, crisp edges laid against each other. Graphic marks and patterns are layered over mysterious forms. These works don’t seem to represent anything specific, though they call to mind tropical gardens, otherworldly landscapes, or ambiguous figures.

Pier Wright earned his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, and his work is included in several collections. He lives on the Leelanau Peninsula in the village on Northport a short walk from Lake Michigan. During the summer months he operates a gallery representing about 10 artists each season.

Join us in welcoming Pier Wright at an opening reception in his honor, on Friday, April 19 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. We are also hosting a gallery talk on Saturday, April 20 at 2:00 p.m., where visitors will be able to participate in an informal conversation with the artist. The opening reception and gallery talk are free and open to the public. Wright’s work will be on display until May 17.

This exhibit is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kresge Foundation.

PCCA exhibitions are sponsored by The Athena Group, Dokka Fasteners, Gerald Salerno – Max Broock Realtors,

the International Academy of Design & Technology, Rochester Hills Spine Care, and WiT.
