Mark Arts to present ‘Universal Frontier’
10:00 AM, February 5, 2023 | Mark Arts
Mark Arts is pleased to present Universal Frontier, a solo exhibition featuring two decades of work by renowned New York-based artist John Newsom in the Gladys and Karl T. Wiedemann Gallery. Exquisitely painted winged creatures imbedded with dynamism and a sense of knowing — owls, dragonflies, and birds — are paired against the artists impressionable geometric abstract surroundings, adeptly unifying realism and abstraction in a single image. The exhibition will be on view January 5 – March 31, 2023.
Universal Frontier embodies and aligns with Mark Arts’ vision to inspire the artist in each of us. Newsom was born and raised in Kansas and has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, participating in more than 100 exhibitions since the mid-1990s. Universal Frontier marks the artist’s first exhibition in Kansas. Newsom shared that “having the opportunity to bring together my paintings from the past two decades to Mark Arts contextualizes where it is I have been and gives insight to where the journey may be heading. It is a journey that began for me a long time ago, on the western plains of Kansas as a youth that has now broadened into an international context. Moving forward, the options seem limitless. Thus, we now venture forward into the Universal Frontier.”
