Jonathan Hammer continues to have a busy year. Along with an exhibition scheduled with our gallery this September, Hammer had successful show in New York and Paris and just opened a group show "steps into the arcane" at the Kunstmuseum Thurgau, Ittingen, Switzerland. Next week he will open an exhibition of his porcelain sculptures and related works on paper at the Correze Art Center (home of Madame Chirac!). In a combination purchase/collector donation, the Whitney Museum has acquired four new pieces to add to its already existing holdings of Jonathan's work.
