Views of Our Culture
April 5 through June 28, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 5th - 2 to 5 pm
Social criticism has long been a theme in shows presented at the Tobey C. Moss Gallery; as examples, works by Max Pollak, Honore Daumier and Rockwell Kent were mounted in the most recent show.
Modernist Women - the women artists featured in this current exhibition - is no exception to that theme
The collages, drawings, prints and paintings by Joyce Treiman, Hannelore Baron, June Wayne and Betye Saar reveal their personal experiences with reflections on social injustice, family relationships, sad romance and societal mores.
Abstraction, as a form, is brilliantly executed by Mary L. Finley Fry, Luchita Hurtado, Elise Seeds and Claire Falkenstein while tickling humor is depicted in works by Beatrice Wood and Dorr Bothwell. Helen Lundeberg and Ruth Asawa offer rich views of post-surrealism and forms from nature.
Simultaneously, the beauty of execution, strengths of compositional structure and nostalgic themes surprisingly convert to calls for active responses. Their images reach out to the viewers; these images ‘touch’ the empathetic viewers.
