The Huntington Museum of Art Museum Store will launch the in-person sale of an exclusive, limited-edition print by Don Pendleton titled “Kinetic” on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2023, from 6 to 8 p.m. The artist has signed and numbered the 100 prints being offered for sale to benefit HMA. In addition, some prints include the handwritten title and some feature pencil sketches by the artist at the bottom margin of the page.
Pendleton will not be able to attend the event on Oct. 17.
“With this piece, I was exploring motion and depth within the shapes,” Pendleton said. “There’s a lot of contrast between the colors to push some parts of the image back and to bring some of the image forward. Between the layers and shadows and the repeated lines, I hoped to create both movement and depth within the artwork.”
The online sale of any remaining prints will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at noon at www.hmoa.org. Each seven-color screenprint will be sold for $100 plus tax through HMA’s Museum Store. The screenprint is 18” x 24” on 110#/200 GSM archival cotton rag paper.
“Don Pendleton is a great friend to the Huntington Museum of Art,” said HMA Executive Director Geoffrey K. Fleming. “This is the second time that Don, whose mural is on display in HMA’s Virginia Van Zandt Great Hall, has created an original print to benefit HMA. We very much appreciate Don’s friendship and support of the Huntington Museum of Art and the fact that he is allowing all the proceeds from the sale of this print to benefit HMA.”
Working out of Dayton, Ohio, Pendleton is an American artist and Grammy Award-winning designer and illustrator. Growing up in Ravenswood, West Virginia, Pendleton became interested in skateboarding.
