LIBERATOR: George Nama & George A. Romero

10/28/17 - 12/23/17

Opening Reception October 28, 2017, 6:00 - 9:00 PM

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts will present an exhibition of works by New York artist George Nama and the late legendary filmmaker of Night of the Living Dead fame, George A. Romero, in an exhibition titled "LIBERATOR".

"LIBERATOR" draws its title from one of George A. Romero's final works – a short story written specifically for his friend, artist George Nama. The centerpiece of the exhibition of more than 40 works revolves around Romero's poignant story inspired by the Golem – an ancient folkloric legend – and George Nama's related etchings, drawings and watercolors. Their collaboration has resulted in a newly published limited edition, "LIBERATOR", which includes Nama's hand colored etchings and Romero's evocative short story, published for the first time in this rare limited edition of 35 numbered portfolios, signed by both artists. The exhibition is also accompanied by a 38 page fully illustrated exhibition catalogue, with brief writings by George Nama and Christine Forrest Romero.
