We shall return in September with Lumpxx a year of special programming to celebrate our 20th season. Encounters by Ludwig Schwarz opens Friday, September 4th.

Lump is pleased to announce Lumpxx a year of special exhibitions to celebrate it's 20th season of programming. Lumpxx looks back and to the future with it's mission intact that combines the rigor and professionalism of a commercial gallery with the experimental attitude of alternative spaces. Lump presents exhibitions and projects with emerging, mid-career and under-recognized artists and is committed to the exhibition of challenging and thought-provoking contemporary art that falls outside the confines of a commodity-driven art market.

We kick it all off with Encounters by Ludwig Schwarz. Lump will host an opening reception on Friday, September 4th from 6 – 9pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk in downtown Raleigh. The exhibition will run from September 4 - 26, 2015 and is on view Saturdays from noon - 5pm and by appointment during the week.

For his fourth solo exhibition at Lump, Dallas-based artist Ludwig Schwarz presents Encounters.

Ludwig Schwarz completed his MFA at the School of Visual Arts New York and returned to Dallas, where he has continued to exhibit both locally and nationally. Recent exhibitions include; Ludwig Schwarz: Retrospective (1990–2014), Dallas Biennial, Oliver Francis Gallery, Dallas, TX; Meet the Schwarzes, NADA NY with James Cope Projects; the 2012 and 2010 Brucennial, NY; Galerie Carolyn Heinz, Hamburg, Germany (2011); Leo Castelli Gallery, NY (2011); Re-Seeing the Contemporary: Selected from the Collection, Dallas Museum of Art (2010); The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University, Walthum, MA (2008) and Road Agent Gallery, Dallas, TX (2007). In an April 2014 feature about Schwarz, Dallas Morning News art critic Rick Brettell wrote of the artist, “I am surer than ever that Schwarz is a major artist. Indeed, he is quite possibly the most important painter who has lived in our city in the last generation…”
