Ledger Drawings + Richard Nonas

In collaboration with Hill Gallery

November 16 – December 22, 2017

Hill Gallery, Birmingham, MI


This fall, Hill Gallery will present the exhibition "Ledger Drawings + Richard Nonas". This extraordinary museum quality collection of Native American Ledger Drawings from Donald Ellis Gallery is paired with a sited sculptural installation by the artist Richard Nonas.

Please join us for a rare evening of interaction with Richard Nonas and Donald Ellis at the Hill Gallery on November 16th from 5 - 8pm, located at 407 W. Brown St. Birmingham, MI.

Richard Nonas lives and works in New York City.  He studied literature and philosophy and inspired by Margaret Mead, he found his calling in the study of social anthropology.  After his education, Richard spent 10 years working as a field anthropologist, living among Native American Indians in Northern Ontario, Northern New Mexico, and Southern Arizona.  In the mid 1960's he turned to sculpture to express space and place, using wood, iron and stone, affecting the people who pass near and through the changed physical environment. With a poetry of minimalism, Nonas creates a body of work that engages the mind and body. He has permanent outdoor installations in the sculpture garden of the Detroit Institute of Arts and on the grounds of Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Ledger Drawings + Richard Nonas will be on view from November 16th - December 22nd 2017.
