POUR (paint): a Symposium – Saturday Feb. 23 at Schmidt Gallery, FAU

Artists in this exhibition refresh the fluid painting techniques associated with postwar abstraction, while reflecting the influence of digital culture through the process of pouring paint. The exhibition explores why, in our digital age, so many painters continue to “pour” paint to create images and how those images resonate with today’s society.

Artists in the exhibition | Ingrid Calame, Kris Chatterson, Roland Flexner, Angelina Gualdoni, Carrie Moyer, Carolanna Parlato, David Reed, Jackie Saccoccio and Carrie Yamaoka.
