New Ann Street Gallery Exhibit – Abstractions: New Modernism


The Ann Street Gallery presents its newest exhibition  Abstractions: New Modernism, with an Artist Reception on Saturday, March 2 from 6:30-8:30 pm. This event is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The contemporary art scene welcomes new generations of artists gleaning inspiration from the practice of the non-representational. One can see such inspired works in our newest exhibition Abstractions: New Modernism, which highlights a group of artists who make a deliberate case for abstraction, while breathing new life into the genre. Within this exhibition, the extension of abstraction runs through various and diverse mediums: painting, drawing, sculpture, collage and digital images, while resisting grand generalizations and addressing skeptical attitudes and misunderstandings we often bring to our experience of abstract art.

Artists featured: Cyrille Allannic, Vivian Altman, Sedar Arat, Sarah Bednarek, Karlos Carcamo, Rosalyn Driscoll, Susan English, Catherine Evans, Kathryn Gabriel, Victoria Manning, Sanford Mirling, Kirsten Nash, Barbara Smith, Dina White and Jake Winiski.

The exhibition is on view through Saturday, April 13, 2013. The exhibition was curated by Virginia Walsh, Director of the Ann Street Gallery.
