Plan on it!
The wide diversity of ideas and techniques of the 1930s and 1990s are displayed in CONTEMPORARY MODERNISTS, confirming that ‘California’ was wide open for new concepts and directions. Artists felt a freedom to burst through boundaries and pave new paths...from John Altoon and Peter Krasnow to Oskar Fischinger and Lorser Feitelson.
In a rich fabric of creative imagery...figuration, abstraction, surrealist, cubist, you can follow interim states in an artist’s evolution. You can feel the meditative essence in Helen Lundeberg, John Paul Jones and Clinton Adams. The complexities of composition stimulate further exploration in works by Williams Brice, Leonard Edmondson and Lee Mullican. In three dimensions, Jack Zajac, Gordon Wagner and George Herms open other directions.
We share this exhibition with you....and look forward to your walk-thru.
