Washington Color School and its Influences
Reception:Friday, April 13, 2007, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
April 13, 2007 - June 22, 2007
Hillyer Art Space proudly presents Washington Color School and its Influences: Selections from the Washington Color School in conjunction with the city-wide ColorField.remix program. The exhibition features four artists who showed works in the Washington Color Painters exhibit at the former Washington Gallery of Modern Art in DC in 1965; these include Gene Davis, Howard Mehring, Thomas Downing, and Paul Reed. Added to the mix of first generation color field painters are Willem de Looper, Alma Thomas, and Anne Truitt. While each of these artists is much more than a contributor to or descendant of the Washington Color School, they are eternally linked in their emphasis on color and light.
IA&A sincerely thanks the Artery Group for allowing Hillyer Art Space to exhibit this grouping of works from their collection. IA&A’s Hillyer Art Space is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
