Driven to Abstraction
Driven to Abstraction opens concurrently in Long-Sharp Gallery’s virtual exhibition space on February 25th. The exhibition includes works by some of the most notable names in contemporary abstraction including Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, and Sam Gilliam. Established abstract artists such as New York’s Sabina Klein and Indiana’s Tamar Kander, along with emerging artists Samuel E. Vázquez, Amy Kirchner, Destiny Palmer, and Kamiesha Garbadawala are also featured. From action painters to contemporary expressionists, the exhibit celebrates the continued driving force of this once-radical art and controversial movement. The virtual exhibit has an audio component which includes commentary by many of the established and emerging artists.
