Dan Rizzie

Born in 1951 in Poughkeepsie, New York, Rizzie has had more than fifty solo exhibitions at museums and galleries since 1975. Selected collections include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Dallas Museum of Fine Art and the San Antonio Museum of Art in Texas, and the Scottsdale Museum of Art in Arizona. Rizzie's abstract compositions play off of an interest he has in antique documents. Many of these paper items from old maps and stamps to musical sheets and legal documents mix well with wax seals and buttons to form intricate designs.
