OPENING RECEPTION AT GALLERY CENTER

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012    2- 7 pm


Helen Frankenthaler, "Hermes" Mixed Media

Helen Frankenthaler (December 12, 1928 – December 27, 2011) was an American  abstract expressionist painter who was a major contributor to the history of postwar American painting. Frankenthaler exhibited her work for over six decades (early 1950s until 2011), spanning a number of generations of abstract painters.  She began exhibiting her large-scale paintings in contemporary museums and galleries in the early 1950s. She was included in the 1964 exhibition curated by Clement Greenberg, which introduced a new generation of abstract painting that came to be known as “Color Field”.  Her work has been the subject of several retrospective exhibitions, including one at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as well as being exhibited worldwide. In 2001, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts. ”Color Field painting”, was the new term coined to describe a style characterized by large areas of a more or less flat single color. The Color Field artists set themselves apart from the Abstract Expressionists because they eliminated the emotional, mythic or the religious content and the highly personal and gestural and painterly application.

Ernest Trova (February 19, 1927 -March 8, 2009) began his career as a decorator and window dresser in St. Louis, MO.  His employer purchased one of his paintings pursued his art.  He is most well known for his series of scupltures “The Fallen Man”.  The Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art and the Tate Gallery have included his work in their collections.
