Abstraction on Paper

Jan. 27-May 10, 2015
Boca Raton Museum of Art

The next installment of the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s Making Connections: Selected Works from the Boca Raton Museum and Private Collections will include the in-focus exhibition: Abstraction on Paper. Delving into the Museum’s rich collection of works on paper, and featuring significant loans from generous members of the community, the exhibition presents a variety of media by American and European artists from the 1920s thru the 1950s. Superb works by American Abstract Artists Balcomb Greene, Gertrude Greene, Blanchs Lazzell, George L.K. Morris and John Sennhauser will mix with the Abstract Expressionist style of Mary Abbott, William Baziotes, Franz Kline and Richard Pousette-Dart and other Modernists such as Alexander Calder and Wassily Kandinsky. While all 20 works were created on paper, the media ranges from ink, gouache, pencil, watercolor to etching and drypoint.
