After a successful run at the Butler Institute of American Art, The National Arts Club is overjoyed to be hosting “Spring Rising,” a brilliant exhibition of recent works by this acclaimed painter.

You can find his works in major museums, including the Metropolitan, the Smithsonian, and the British Museum. They’re also in private collections all across the globe. This fall, you can also find Morton Kaish’s work at the National Arts Club in New York City via “Spring Rising,” a representation of more than 30 years of Kaish’s floral and landscape works.

“Critics have noted Kaish’s powerful ability to combine traditional and experimental painting techniques with contemporary insights,” the club writes. “His relish for blazing color, vigorous brushwork, and intricate handling produces paintings that are romantic but never sentimental. Also feature are a series of accomplished etchings and monotypes.”

“Spring Rising” opens October 2 and continues through October 28. To learn more, visit The National Arts Club.
