Anita Shapolsky Gallery is pleased to announce Inspiration & Exploration, a group show featuring paintings, paper works, and sculpture from some of the greatest abstract artists of the 20th century. Inspiration & Exploration showcases how these artists chose to define themselves and their world in a century marked by two world wars, rapid technological change across the globe, radical social movements, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Releasing themselves from many of the traditional boundaries of technique, composition, and subject matter, abstract artists were free to investigate non-traditional media, concepts, and visual languages. This exhibition investigates these artists' sources of inspiration and the various ways they explored their personal style and medium.

FEATURED ARTISTS:

Alcopley, Mario Bencomo, James Brooks, Norman Carton, Christo, Nassos Daphnis, Sonia Gechtoff, Tony Harrison, Stanley William Hayter, Buffie Johnson, Albert Kotin, Fred Mitchell, Louise Nevelson, Betty Parsons, Irving Petlin, Anne Ryan, William Saroyan, Nancy Steinson, Yvonne Thomas
