The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will open an exhibit of works by Arthur Carter with a reception and talk with the artist April 26 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The show, which will run through June 21, features sculptures, orthogonals and paintings

Carter was trained as a classical pianist, majored in French literature at Brown University, served three years in the United States Coast Guard as a lieutenant commanding officer of an air search and rescue craft, then received an MBA in finance from Dartmouth, followed by a 25-year career as an investment banker.

In 1981, he started a new venture. Founding the "Litchfield County Times" and six years later the New York Observer, he began his career as a publisher.

In 2008, the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute was founded at New York University, where Carter is a trustee and chairman of the Board of Overseers of the Faculty of Arts and Science.

He has held adjunct professorships in philosophy and journalism at NYU.

This exhibit will include Carter's orthogonals.

Carter maintains a production facility and design studio in Roxbury.

He is the author of two hardcover books, "Arthur Carter: Sculptures, Paintings, Drawings" and "Arthur Carter: Studies for Construction."
