Sol Lewitt was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1928, and attended Syracuse University. After serving in the Korean War as a graphic artist, he moved, in 1953, to New York, where he worked as a draftsman for the architect I. M. Pei. LeWitt had his first solo exhibition at the Daniels Gallery, New York, in 1965, and the following year Dwan Gallery, New York, mounted the first in a series of solo exhibitions. He participated, during the late 1960s and early 1970s, in several significant group exhibitions of Minimalist and Conceptual art, including "Primary Structures," at the Jewish Museum, New York, in 1966, and "When Attitude Becomes Form," at the Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, in 1969. His renowned text "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" was published in 1967. LeWitt's work was included in Documentas 6 (1977) and 7 (1982) in Kassel, as well as the 1987 Skulptur Projekte in Münster and the 1989 Istanbul Biennial. Major retrospectives of his works were organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1978, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, in 2000.

Jeremy Ziemann has a BFA from S.U.N.Y. Purchase; he builds outdoor, site- specific, and interior sculptures that are minimal in form, and concentrate on light interaction, and he produces large scale brush drawings that document the process of sweeping. He lives on a houseboat on the Connecticut River where he studies light, water, and swimming.
Ziemann has worked on LeWitt installations since ’89 and is Principal assistant on many large scale sculpture projects, maquette fabrication and the recent
“Sphere” project.
Ziemann’s work may be seen at the Chester Gallery, in Chester, Ct.
