Crown Point Press announces the group exhibition Degrees of Abstraction. It presents fifteen artists who explore the visual language of abstraction and features six new color etchings by New York artist Mary Heilmann.
“Looking at abstract art is like doing non-verbal philosophy, symbolic logic or non-number mathematics,” Heilmann has said. “It is like music, because it has a narrative without a story, without people: a drama without words.” The exhibition investigates threads that tie together a group of abstract artists. It connects now stalwarts such as Mary Heilmann and Pat Steir with a younger generation that includes Tomma Abts and John Zurier. On view November 2 to January 13, Degrees of Abstraction demonstrates the enduring vitality of non-representational art for over four decades. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 2, 5-8pm.
