Reception: Friday, Feb 5, 7-8 pm

and paintings from Aimee Mann's "Lost in Space"

Press Release:

"Adam Baumgold Gallery presents an exhibition of drawings, paintings on paper and sculpture by Seth from February 5 through March 13, 2010. This will be Seth's first U.S. solo exhibition and will include 50 artworks, the majority of which comprise the bulk of his celebrated Graphic Novel GEORGE SPROTT 1894-1975 (originally serialized in The New York Times Sunday Magazine from 2006 to 2007). In addition, the exhibition will feature 6 of Seth's Dominion city cardboard architectural models, each of which has been specifically constructed for this event. Each of these buildings represents a specific location associated with the character of George Sprott himself. Also included in the exhibition are Seth's original gouache and ink paintings from Aimee Mann's sublime 2002 album LOST IN SPACE.


........ GEORGE SPROTT is the story of an 81 year old fictional TV personality in the last hours of life before his fatal heart attack in 1975. Told as a patchwork tale, we come to know George, piece by piece, in a series of "interviews", flashbacks and personal reminiscences. It is a story about time, identity, loss, and the persistence of memory. In the end it is left to the reader to decide whether George's existence was a life well lived or a tragedy of wasted potential. The GEORGE SPROTT drawings presented in this exhibition are self contained, single page stories, each encapsulating a piece of the larger George Sprott puzzle. GEORGE SPROTT has recently been selected among the best books of 2009 at both Amazon and Google and also in The New York Times. "
