3D: Focus on the Abstract

May 8, 2021 - August 29, 2021

Henry Gallery

At the turn of the 20th century as the modern art movement developed and artists began experimenting with different forms, techniques, and materials, sculptors soon realized that their work did not have to look like anything found in the real world, but rather could be an expression of their emotions or creative process. In contrast to the exhibition on view in the Hodge Gallery, 3D: Focus on the Figure, this exhibition presents sculptures by artists who have strayed away from realistic representation and explored abstraction including Louise Nevelson, Michael Dunbar, and George Sugarman.
