“Abstract-Schmabstract" + "Altered Edges featuring Richards Reuben" — LAST DAY

(Jan. 19-Apr. 9) — “Abstract-Schmabstract," a group show, is composed of artists who are known for their strong, lyrical, expressive brushstrokes; their use of color; and their ambitious geometric compositions. We have all heard the different names given to abstract art — Abstract Expressionism, New York School, Lyrical, Geometric, Color Field, Minimalism, Constructivism, etc. This exhibition presents the many different paths that these accomplished artists took, with works by Seymour Boardman, Ilya Bolotowsky, Ernest Briggs, Lawrence Calcagno, Amaranth Ehrenhalt, Joseph Fiore, Buffie Johnson, William Manning, Ethel Schwabacher, and Thomas Sills. 

“Altered Edges” highlights the abstract paintings and paper pieces of Richards Ruben, a post-war artist who constantly searched for new ideas and unexplored territories. 

Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 19, 2:30 – 5pm
