Artists in Conversation: Mary Frank and David Hornung

Mary Frank was born in London, England, in 1933. She moved to the United States with her family in 1940, and in the early 1950s she studied with Hans Hoffman and Max Beckmann. Frank works across disciplines as a sculptor, painter, photographer and gifted ceramic artist. In 2017, a solo exhibition at DC Moore Gallery coincided with the publication of the monograph, Pilgrimage: Photographs by Mary Frank, by the Eakins Press Foundation with texts by the poet and critic John Yau, and environmental activist and author, Terry Tempest Williams. Frank's work is in many public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, The Morgan Library and Museum, The Jewish Museum, The National Museum of American Art, The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Mary Frank lives and works in New York City and Bearsville, NY.

David Hornung is a painter and collage artist whose work has been widely exhibited. He is the author of Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, a textbook that has been translated into six languages and is used in art schools and private studios around the world. Over the course of a long career David has held teaching positions at Indiana University, Skidmore College, and The Rhode Island School of Design. He is currently a professor at Adelphi University where he teaches courses in color theory, design, collage, and painting.
