"Experiments in Form: Sam Gilliam, Alan Shields, Frank Stella"

  • Art, Painting

Time Out says

In the late ‘60s, Sam Gilliam was part of a group of painters that began experimenting with color, making it the primary focus of their canvases. Gilliam developed "drape" paintings, featuring an unstretched canvas that was covered with paint and presented as a hanging sculpture. To celebrate the recent gift of Gilliam's painting "One," the Block Museum will present an exhibit devoted to his work, accompanied by pieces by contemporaries Alan Shields and Frank Stella.
