Design Writer Stanley Abercrombie Exhibits Artwork in California
In the design world, we know Stanley Abercrombie as a man of many talents. A writer, he has authored more than a dozen books as well as penned hundreds of articles for 46 different magazines and newspapers. At Interior Design, he served as editor-in-chief for 14 years following stints at the AIA Journal, Interiors, and Abitare in America. A practicing architect and designer, he worked in the offices of Marcel Breuer & Associates and John Carl Warnecke. Add curator, critic, and educator to his curriculum vitae. New to us, at least until now, is his expertise as an artist. An upcoming exhibition at the Point Richmond Gallery in northern California proves the point. On view will be some 40 works in such mediums as collage and drawings reflecting his travels, keen eye, and affinity for Rome where he was a fellow at the American Academy. Gallerist Margi Sullivan, herself an erstwhile designer, will host the opening on February 25. The show runs through April 7.
