IFAC and Rox Gallery are proud to present a selection of over 60 paintings and works on paper by the abstract expressionist Joann Gedney. This is the first time these works have been on public display since the 1950’s.


The 1950's ushered in an unprecedented wave of artistic convergence in New York City. Lured by the vibrancy of the East Village, the late painter and founding member of March Gallery, Joann Gedney (1925-2013), arrived in 1947 after graduation from Wheaton

College and ultimately befriended many of the great artists who defined the Abstract Expressionist generation, particularly Milton Resnick who lived above her 8th street studio and Franz Kline, her first love, who lived down the block. A retrospective exhibition of this integral New York artist's early work, 1948-1963, will be on view from March 7 - April 7 at Rox Gallery.
