Celebrating the centenary of the artist’s birth, “Syd Solomon: Time and Tide” showcases his renowned works. Born in Pennsylvania and a student of the Art Institute of Chicago, Solomon used his artistic skill to create camouflage instruction manuals during WWII. After the war, Solomon experimented with new synthetic media, the precursors to acrylic paints, which put him at the forefront of technical innovations in his generation. Solomon’s work began to be acknowledged nationally in 1952 and in 1955, he met and befriended many of the artists of the New York School, including Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, James Brooks, Alfonso Ossorio, and Conrad Marca-Relli. After decades of work and transforming the art scene in both Sarasota and the Hamptons, Solomon died in 2004.
