Opening on March 22, 2022, at 72 Warren Street Gallery in Tribeca is Adrianne Lobel: Paintings and Tapestries, a series of twelve paintings and twelve tapestries. Paintings and Tapestries was created by multidisciplinary American artist Adrianne Lobel, known for her extensive career in stage design for ballet, opera, and theater, on and off-Broadway, in major regional theaters and Europe. 

Work featured in Paintings and Tapestries was produced in a secluded stone house in Rhinebeck, NY, where she was able to draw inspiration from the surrounding fields and woods. The artist typically works outside, crafting plein air paintings that later become the basis for larger canvases made in her Hoboken studio. These paintings are then used as the basis for Lobel’s tapestries. Lobel’s pieces utilize intense colors and decisive attention to line and geometry, and are inspired by the work of artists such as Henri Matisse, Isamu Noguchi, and Sophie Tauber-Arp. The exhibition will remain up through April 17, 2022.
