Modern Masters: Twentieth Century Prints
February 24 - May 6, 2017
Opening Reception: February 24th, 2017 ; 5:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.
Twentieth century art, often referred to as Modern Art, actually began in the late nineteenth century with the movements of Post-Impressionism, Art Nouveau, and Symbolism. Artists began to question the notion of imitating nature and self-consciously emphasized the materials of painting – leaving visible brush strokes, areas of blank canvas and purposefully distorting points of view and perspective – reminding viewers that ultimately, painting can never truly mimic nature. This exhibit presents many of the styles and techniques popularized by the various movements that made up the one hundred years of twentieth century art.
