Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17

"Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17," an exhibition of abstract graphics and works in other media by eight artists, will be on view at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center from August 4 through October 29, 2016. Organized by guest curator Christina Weyl, PhD, co-founder and co-president of the Association of Print Scholars, the exhibition highlights the innovative techniques developed at Atelier 17, an experimental printmaking studio that operated in New York City from 1940-1955. Nearly 200 artists made prints there, almost half of them women. The exhibition focuses on a core group--Louise Bourgeois, Minna Citron, Worden Day, Dorothy Dehner, Sue Fuller, Alice Trumbull Mason, Louise Nevelson and Anne Ryan--who bent traditional printmaking rules and explored uncharted aesthetic terrain in various intaglio and relief printing techniques. For more information, please visit their website
