Geometric Abstraction

EXHIBITION: January 19–April 14, 2024
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 20, 4-6pm

PHOEBE & BELMONT TOWBIN WING

Geometric Abstraction in art reduces figures to their simplest form with compositions that vaguely reference subject matter or more likely do not contain one at all. While artists of the Woodstock Art Colony are best known for their idyllic landscape paintings, many 20th century artists of the region experimented with new movements in Modern art that began in European cities and evolved in New York. In this exhibition, line, shape and color dominate the frame. Examples include Konrad Cramer’s 1950s photographs of abstract collages, Rolph Scarlett’s colorful non-objective paintings, and Helen Gerardia’s fractured grid, Autumn. The exhibition features 22 works of art from the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum’s permanent collection.
