Adelson Cavalier Galleries is pleased to present Jamie Wyeth “Animal Friends’
Adelson Cavalier Galleries will be presenting a selection of nine Jamie Wyeth paintings on canvas and works on paper in their Salon gallery. The subjects of these paintings are pets or animals Jamie observed on his farm in Delaware or on Monhegan Island, Maine. Each subject is full of character and personifies human excitement, intrigue, and a range of other emotions.
We have included Jamie Wyeth’s newest painting in this exhibition, “An Official Portrait of Archie Wahola,” which depicts Andy Warhol and his beloved dachshund, Archie. In this work, Archie is the primary focus of the composition rather than his more famous owner. Jamie had been friends with Warhol, and even painted him several times in the 1970s. In 1976, Warhol and Wyeth had an exhibition together titled, “Portraits of Each Other.” Interestingly, Jamie has decided to paint Warhol again in 2019; however, this time, Andy is in the background and Archie takes the stage. Among many other qualities, Jamie admired Warhol’s love of animals – understanding that animals, unlike people, are never dishonest. Having been in the spotlight and treated as a celebrity most of his life, Jamie cherishes moments when he can retreat and be with his animal friends.

About Adelson Cavalier
Seeking to expand their presence, two top gallerists, Adam Adelson of Adelson Galleries in New York and Boston, and Ron Cavalier of Cavalier Galleries with locations in Greenwich, Nantucket and New York, partnered to open Adelson Cavalier Galleries in Palm Beach, FL in November, 2018.
Each partner brings a wealth of experience from the art world that informs the vision for their new gallery. Adam Adelson and his siblings, who also work in industry, grew up at the gallery their father, Warren Adelson, founded in 1964. For more than 50 years, Adelson Galleries in Midtown Manhattan has been a mainstay for 19th and 20th century Fine Art.
The new venue is a bi-level space that occupies 3,400 square feet, and is tailormade for the changing exhibitions that will be curated primarily by Adelson. The exhibits will highlight emerging and established Contemporary artists, as well as historically significant artworks by 19th and 20th Century masters.
Summer Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10:30 AM- 5:30PM
