(Boston) – The Boston University Art Gallery (BUAG) is pleased to present Harold Reddicliffe: Paintings from Three Decades, opening Thursday, November 18, 2010. The exhibit explores the body of work created by realist painter and Boston University College of Fine Arts Associate Professor of Painting Harold Reddicliffe.

Paintings from Three Decades features over eighty pieces of Reddicliffe’s work dating back to 1981. He is best known for the nearly photographic appearance of his still-life paintings of traditional domestic objects and his ability to illustrate the beauty of industrial design.

“My recent paintings explore the transformation that occurs when ordinary objects are subjected to extraordinary scrutiny,” says Reddicliffe, a 2010 recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship in Painting. A 48-plate color catalog with essays and 24 color pages accompanies the exhibition.

Dedicated to serving the public of New England as well as the university community, Boston University Art Gallery (BUAG) is a non-profit art gallery geared toward an interdisciplinary interpretation of art and culture. Maintaining an ongoing exhibition schedule in its current location since 1958, now named the Stone Gallery, exhibitions focus on international, national, and regional art developments, chiefly in the twentieth century. BUAG has a particular commitment to offer a culturally inclusive view of art, one that expands the boundaries of museum exhibitions.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Saturday & Sunday 1:00 – 5:00 PM (closed Mondays and holidays).
