Our exhibition "American Styles of the 1930s" shows a period when artists turned away from European art to look for an American story. American Scene artists used realism so their art could be understood by all. However, a diversity of styles operated within realism to give artists flexibility to accommodate the character of America’s diverse environments and experiences.

The American Scene Movement was supported by government employment programs from 1933 through 1943. The government’s public art projects included post offices, airports, schools, and hospitals, as well as programs to teach art across the country. These efforts broke down the narrow boundaries of connoisseurship. Art, once deemed a luxury for the few, became art for all in the 1930s. Artists served a national function to support and reshape an American identity.

The different styles within American Scene art reflect the democratic spirit which allows diverse ideas to be utilized, freely appropriated, and fused into something new.

Our exhibition is timed to complement the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition “Art for the Millions: American Politics and Culture in the 1930s” now on view.

Announcing our new exhibition “I.

She was a member of the American Abstract Artists group and frequently exhibited at the Museum of Non-Objective Painting (the early Guggenheim) and Peggy Guggenheim's Art of This Century.

Our exhibition includes 5 glass constructions from the 1940s-1950s and 12 large Lapis paintings from the 1960s. The exhibition is on view through January 27th.

Our exhibition “Sally Michel: Reshaping Realism, 1950-1985” is on view through May 18. The exhibition of thirty paintings shows how Sally Michel’s art bridged the gap between representational and abstract painting, in a style that successfully refreshed and moved realism forward during a period when Abstract Expressionism dominated New York. Her husband Milton Avery has a traveling museum exhibition currently on view at the Wadsworth Atheneum, next going to the Royal Academy in London.
