Small Scale – Intimate Works of American Abstraction
May 15, 2021 - June 25, 2021
A unique presentation of smaller scale artworks, abstract paintings and sculpture, spanning a period from the 1940’s through the 1980’s. The focus of the exhibit is of moderate scale artworks, pieces that are sometimes overshadowed by their larger counterparts, as much of mid-century abstraction is impactful and large in scale. Accessible and intimate in size, the featured three-dimensional works are easily placed on a table, desk, bookshelf or in a vitrine. A painting or sculpture of smaller scale is often a sketch or study where the composition is being worked up to a larger scale.
