In response to the intensely introspective approach of mid-20th-century Abstract Expressionism, artists of the 1960s and 70s worked in a pluralism of styles that comprised two opposing trends: a neutral investigation of formal elements and a return to representation of the visible world. In their exploration of process and the qualities of line, shape, and color, artists created new abstract worlds, often identified by their cool, hard-edge structures, interest in mathematical constructs, and use of repetition. At the same time, others rejected abstraction altogether, turning to subjects from popular culture and the everyday life of urban and suburban environments, depicted with an objective, deadpan approach. Color Field, Minimalist, Pop, and Photorealist work by Don Eddy, Audrey Flack, Helen Frankenthaler, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Lindner, Claes Oldenburg, Fairfield Porter, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman, and many others will be included.

The Art of Narrative: Timeless Tales and Visual Vignettes explores storytelling in art from the 16th through 20th centuries.  From Bible stories and mythology to history and literature, narrative subjects, often with moralistic messages, were considered the pinnacle of art production until the 19th century.  Since then, the stories expressed in painting, prints, photography, and sculpture, have been more personal, sometimes sourcing daily life for universal truths regarding the human condition.  Illustrations by early American modernist Arthur Dove and others, a genre group by John Rogers, experimental photography by Martina Lopez, and abstract work by James Rosenquist are included, as well as works by Alonzo Chappel, François Girardon, George Grosz, Daniel Ridgeway Knight, Henry Varnum Poor, Adolf Schreyer, and many others.

 

One gallery of The Art of Narrative exhibition will be deinstalled temporarily from October 6 through November 5. It will reopen November 18.
