COLOR FIELD PAINTERS CHAMPIONED BY CLEMENT GREENBERG
March 17, 2018: Private Invitation Only Opening. March 20-April 28, 2018: Open To Public
The exhibition will feature works by Kenneth Nolad, Jules Olitski, Dan Christensen,Larry Zox, Darryl Hughto, Susan Roth, Michael Steiner, Francine Tint,and others who emerged in the1960’s and 1970’s, and whose work was the continuation of the Abstract Expressionism of Hans Hoffman, Adolph Gottlieb, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell,Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko.
The exhibition will also include rare original prints by
Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, and others.
Clement Greenberg (1909-1994), widely considered the most perceptive
and influential art critics of Mid-Century American Modernism, wrote:
“If the label Abstract Expressionism means anything, it means painterliness: loose, rapid handling, or the look of it; masses that blotted and fused instead of shapes that stayed distinct: large and conspicuous rhythms, broke color; uneven saturations or densities of paint, exhibited brush, knife or finger marks…
in short, a constellation of qualities.”
A Co-Production of SCHULTE FINE ART & FREDERICK HOLMES AND COMPANY
This is the second collaborative exhibition between Frederick Holmes And Company – a Seattle gallery which regularly presents European and American 20th Century Modern and Post-War, along with emerging national and international artists; and Schulte Fine Art – private art dealers who, before moving to Seattle, owned galleries in New York and New Jersey, specializing in Post-War American Abstraction.
Both parties share a common commitment to introducing more people, regardless of their expertise in collecting, to the experience of owning important, historically critical, and timeless art.
