Nathan Oliveira exhibition at Humane Society Silicon Valley
Submitted By Jennifer Simonsen
Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) has a unique opportunity to share with the Tri-Cities. Beginning on September 14 and running through the weekend, the paintings of the late, renowned local artist Nathan Oliveira will be showcased at HSSV. Loaned by his loving family and friends from their personal collections, many of these dog paintings have never been seen by the public.
Who was Nathan Oliveira? Oliveira was a world-renowned American painter, printmaker, and sculptor. An art professor at Stanford, Oliveira was a leader and vital contributor in the Bay Area Figurative movement of the late '50s and early '60s. His artwork is in most major collections across the country and around the world, including the Smithsonian, Whitney, and MOMA museums.
Why the dog? A longtime HSSV supporter and member of the Honorary Board, Oliveira loved dogs and other animals and throughout his career featured many of them in his most famous and important paintings. This event will showcase Oliveira's dog paintings, particularly those of Max, his dear companion and favorite Rottweiler.
