Artist Reception- Sunday, Jan 21 // 2-4pm

Exhibition- Jan 21 – Feb 25

In the late 1940s of Post-World War II America, artists were heavily influenced by the Great Depression, Mexican muralists, and the surrealist idea that art should come from the unconscious mind. Out of this world came Abstract Expressionism, an art form of many vastly different painterly styles but a shared emphasis on the unstudied application of paint and intuitive psychic improvisation. This movement became a powerful way for women to express their thoughts and emotions through gestural abstraction, and swathes of magnificent color. Women’s Work; Reshaping the Abstract Narrative brings together the work of Leslye Discont Arian, Patty Flauto, Suzan Kraus, Carol MacConnell, Elliot Twelvetrees, and M.P. Wiggans from January 21 – February 25 at The Mansfield Art Center.
