Lytle paintings, drawings in new exhibit  

Fairfield University’s Walsh Gallery in Quick Center for the Arts will open a new exhibition, Richard Lytle: A Retrospective, on Friday. The artist’s paintings and drawings have been hailed for their “mastery of color,” a hallmark of his work, which ranges from realist to abstraction.  Lytle’s connection to Fairfield U. dates back to a commission he received for drawings for the exterior bas-relief sculptures for the Barone Campus Center in 1965. The sculptures are now visible inside and on the exterior of the new Tully Dining Commons building. Organized as part of the celebration of Fairfield U.’s 75th anniversary, this retrospective, which runs through Feb. 3, includes original drawings for the bas-reliefs — a recent gift to the museum from the artist — charcoal drawings from the 1960s Nude Figures Series, a selection of Pod Series drawings from the 1970s, watercolors and large oil paintings. A reception is set for tonight, Sept. 14, from 6-7:30 p.m. A gallery talk with the artist will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 5 p.m. Drawing Into Sculpture, a talk by Michael Donovan, adjunct professor of studio art, will be on Oct. 18, 5 p.m. To register for these free events, go to fuam.eventbrite.com.
