"Color | Gesture: Early Works by Emily Mason."
Emily Mason is one of the great abstract painters. For more than sixty years she has been creating lyrical paintings on canvas and paper where strong gestural marks contrast with washes of color and spontaneous splashes and drips. Mason attended Bennington College from 1950 to 1952 before immersing herself in the vibrant art scene of 1950s New York City. "Color|Gesture: Early Works by Emily Mason" traces the development of the artist’s distinctive style of abstraction through paintings on paper created in the 1950s and 1960s.
