Was there modern art prior to the 20th century? Yes, but as a movement - especially in the United States - Abstraction truly got its foothold in the art world slightly more than a century ago. A survey of works from this artistic movement will be exhibited in "Continuity to Change: Recent History of American Abstraction," a free exhibition at the Tower Fine Arts Center Gallery.
This exhibition is dedicated to the multi-generational group of American artists who have devoted their professional creative activities to Abstraction, which became established in a time when museums and galleries were more conservative in their offerings. Continuity to Change traces Abstraction’s impact on the art world from roughly 1936 to the current day, and emphasizes the central tenets the methodology: composition, color, content, and material.
Opening reception: Thursday, Jan. 31, 4:00 pm
Exhibit runs January 31 - March 3, 2019
