Spoke Art Gallery has teamed up with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation for its latest exhibition, “Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless,” which will present a number of retro illustrations at the late writer and architect’s famous Taliesin West winter home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Enlisting over a dozen artists from around the world, the pieces have all been designed in the essence of the Works Progress Administration’s (WPA) travel posters from the 1930’s. The prints will each feature different takes on some of Wright’s popular building designs, with artists including George Townley, Steve Thomas, Max Dalton, Martin Ansin and Nico Delort providing the works.

“Keeping in mind Wright’s personal interest in affordable housing, we’ve extended that interest to reflect in the show by focusing specifically on artists who specialize in the medium of serigraphy; this allows us to create limited-edition screen-printed works that are both handmade and affordable, a duality that I hope Wright would have appreciated,” said Ken Harman Hashimoto, Spoke Art Gallery Curator.

“Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless” will take place June 14-16, 2019, at Taliesin West. The following month, July 26-28, it will make its way to Hashimoto Contemporary in New York. Prints will be available for purchase starting at $50 USD.
