Caldwell Gallery Hudson presents "Six Decades of American Abstraction", an exhibit that looks at abstract art from the 1930s – 1980s. Featuring twenty-nine different artists, the show features striking examples of the rich diversity and breadth of abstract art. Opening January 20th the exhibition will remain on view through April 30th.
The earliest work featured is a 1931 canvas by Frederik Kann, done when he was a member of the Abstraction-Creation group. Several of the featured artists, including Kann, were members of the American Abstract Artists group – Vaclav Vytlacil, Carl Holty, Hans Burkhardt, Jimmy Ernst, John Von Wicht, Irene Rice Periera, John Grillo, Betty Parsons, and Joseph Meert. This chronological journey through American Abstraction, from its earliest days to the end of the last century, exemplifies how a diverse group of artists expressed their ideas, emotions, in fact their very selves, through the use of color, technique, and in some cases materials.
From the fractal undulations of Larry Poons's Rum Boat to a rare non-objective piece by Charles Sheeler this show seeks to explore the great diversity of American Abstraction.
