Abstraction: Works from the Burchfield-Penney Art Center Collection
On View Saturday, August 27–Sunday, November 20, 2005
This exhibition illustrates developments in twentieth-century abstraction by many of Western New York’s most accomplished artists. Participating in the rich international history of this aesthetic movement, our region’s artists have pursued the full gamut of conceptual and technical perspectives. Their work parallels the progress made when art became more psychologically symbolic to express the radical historical and technological changes occurring in the world. This exhibition provides an attractive counterpoint to the Albright-KnoxArtGallery’s presentation of leading, international, contemporary work in Extreme Abstraction.
