The Anita Shapolsky Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a group exhibition, CA → NY: Post-War Migration of Abstract Expressionists. This exhibition attempts to visually demonstrate the exchange of ideas that occurred between both the Bay Area and New York Schools of Abstract Expressionism. While the two schools shared a belief in the active process of painting to express one’s innermost thoughts and feelings, the New York artists were more heavily affected by trends in European art. The Californian artists in this exhibition created a style that was truly American, often rooted in natural forms rather than urban landscapes.
