Excerpted from the New York Observer by Hilton Kramer:
[Virginia] Zabriskie founded the gallery that bears her name in 1954, and over the course of half a century, the gallery has mounted some 800 exhibitions....Ms. Zabriskie featured a roster of both younger and well-established American artists: Pat Adams, Clinton Hill and Lester Johnson, among the painters, and Mary Frank, Elie Nadelman and Richard Stankiewicz, among the sculptors....The point I want to make is that from the outset of her career in the art world, Virginia Zabriskie brought an amazing artistic command to her exhibition programs, both here and abroad, often to a degree that went beyond what the museums were attempting in the same period. She wasn't the only art dealer to do so, of course, but her Paris adventure remains, if not unique, certainly unusual...{T}he Zabriskie Gallery is very much alive on its 50th anniversary. To mark the elegant hardcover book, Zabriskie: Fifty Years, has been published by the Ruder Finn Press.
