Postwar Modernism of the West

Posted on | November 12, 2011 | Comments Off on Postwar Modernism of the West

Calabi Gallery proudly presents Postwar Modernism of the West 2011. This exhibition will showcase works created after World War II, when a fresh new spirit arose from the ashes of the Great Depression and the most horrific war of them all. The immediate post war years are just a starting point – while the works from 1945 – 1950 are justly celebrated as a turning point in art history, the later works created by these artists as they continued to evolve have often been forgotten as the critics moved on to the latest “isms.” Postwar Modernism of the West will open Saturday, November 12th with an opening reception during the Downtown Petaluma Second Saturday ArtWalk from 3-7pm.

We will show works from 1945 – 1985, mostly abstract, by artists including Clinton AdamsElla Alluisi, Valenti Michael AngeloPaul Beattie, Karl Benjamin, Eugene BermanDorr Bothwell, Hans Burkhardt, Jean Charlot, Ed Corbett, Katherine Skeele Dann, Roy De ForestFrancis DeErdelyClaire Falkenstein, FarallaEdward Hagedorn, Charles H.
