Peter Max painting exhibition celebrates Woodstock’s 50th anniversary

Mary Pickels
A newly-curated exhibition of artist Peter Max’s paintings will be shown at the Christine Frechard Gallery in Pittsburgh in May.

A newly-curated collection of artist Peter Max’s work will be on exhibition and available for purchase May 11-19 at the Christine Frechard Gallery, 5126 Butler St., Pittsburgh.

Max, a German-American artist, is well-known for producing psychedelic and pop art. His work features bright, rainbow colors bordering on neon. He became well-known in the 1960s for creating a number of posters for popular bands, which decorated many a teenage bedroom and college dormitory.

Max has painted the Statue of Liberty and the American flag, and has done art work for ad campaigns including Chrysler and 7-Up.

The collection will feature works celebrating the 50th anniversary of the music festival Woodstock.

A preview reception will take place 6-8 p.m. May 10.

Three gallery receptions are scheduled for 6-9 p.m. May 17, 5-8 p.m. May 18 and 1-3 p.m. May 19.

Events are free and open to the public, however RSVPs are required.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
