On view through July 9th
A unique presentation of smaller scale artworks, abstract paintings and sculpture, spanning a period from the 1940s through the 1980s. The focus of the exhibit is of moderate scale work and 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.
