Dorian Grey Gallery is proud to present Lowell Nesbitt's Pistils & Stamens, the first exhibition of this artist's work in New York City in over twenty years.
Lowell Nesbitt was born in Baltimore in 1933. He graduated from Pennsylvania's Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 1955 and attended London's Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1956. His first exhibition was in 1957, and was followed by more than eighty domestic and international solo exhibitions in his lifetime. His paintings, drawings and prints are included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, National Gallery of Art and Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 1969 and 1970, NASA named Nesbitt the official artist of the Apollo 9 and Apollo 13 missions. In 1980, the US Postal Service released a series of stamps based upon his floral paintings.
