ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM Soon after World War II, the center of the avant-garde shifted from Europe to the United States when the first American-grown modern art movement-abstract expressionism-was born. <p> This first fully American movement emphasized individual expression and the freedom to experiment with materials and processes. In this presentation of abstract works, you'll see how artists, including Robert Motherwell, Betty Parsons, and Joan Mitchell used loose brushwork and emphasized surface rather than depth on the canvas. A selection of works on paper also comprise this exhibition and show how artists, including Deborah Remington and Lee Krasner, capture the quiet intimacy of direct, informal drawing. </p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Works on view illustrate Howson Taylor's continual experimentation with new and sometimes difficult glaze techniques, resulting in four primary glazes-soufflé, luster, crystalline/matte, and high-fired flambé.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

TABLEAU Tableau is a new installation by Hadley Hooper, a painter, illustrator, and Denver native. Hooper was inspired by old theater stage sets and created larger-than-life immersive illustrations with opportunities for visitors to become a part of the set and take pictures of themselves (share on social media with #TableauDAM). The imagery and stories at first glance are familiar but make you take a second look. America/North_Dakota/Center

UNSEATED Innovative and unexpected-these works reveal the vast range of materials and processes utilized by contemporary designers as they challenge our notions of what design can be through the enduring form of the chair. <p> The methods employed by these designers demonstrate a juxtaposition of handcraftsmanship and digital production, from unconventional and spontaneous processes (melting, wrapping, and molding), to sculpting with math and technology. Some utilize longstanding production methods, while others push the limits of existing technologies or build their own specialized tools. </p> America/North_Dakota/Center

WHAT IT MEANT TO BE MODERN, 1910&#8211;1965 What it Meant to be Modern, 1910-1965: American Works on Paper from the Karen and Kevin Kennedy Collection brings together the visionary work of Oscar Bluemner, Charles Burchfield, Stuart Davis, John Marin, and Charles Sheeler. The 18 works on paper all share the magic of the modernist movement of the first half of the twentieth century. <p> Where some of the images flirt with abstraction, as seen in Charles Sheeler and John Marin, others experiment with a pulsing sense of nature endowed with an incredible lightness of being, as does Charles Burchfield. Oscar Bluemner's pieces glow with mystery and intense color while Stuart Davis gives us a powerful view of the landscape with the shifting planes of perspective. These five artists were chosen for the diversity of their art at a time when a new way of exploring an image reflected a unique and exciting vision of the world around us. </p> <p> The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog, which will be available in The Shops and online. </p> America/North_Dakota/Center
