"Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art"
Seeking to expand both the modern and contemporary aspects of abstract art, 27 artists are featured in this exhibition. A wide survey of work is presented by Texas women from post-WWII to the present. Beginning with Dorothy Hood and Toni LeSelle, whose works from the 1950s and ‘60s exude rich color and energetic brush strokes as well as psychological introspection, the exhibition moves forward through to decades to include work from artists who came of age in a more technological world. These artists, including Annette Lawerence, Constance Lowe, Susie Rosmarin, and Lorraine Tady, use various aspects of technology as inspiration and interpretation. The natural world is also a theme and inspiration of several of the artists in the exhibition including Terrell James, Margo Sawyer, and Liz Ward. The breadth and scope of the body of work from the group tells the story of abstraction in the last seven decades and gives a view of abstraction moving forward.
