Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Driven To Abstraction, an all-women exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by Caroline Blum (Window on Haight Street 2017 above), Lori Ellison, Dana James, Melanie Parke and Lizzie Scott. The exhibition has been guest curated by Caroline Blum, a New York based abstract artist, and her husband David Reisman, a writer with Frieze Magazine.
The idea took shape for Caroline after reading recent criticism of mainstream museums and galleries for exhibiting more men than women. In response, Caroline chose to make a curatorial statement and feature five strong women painters. Making connections through social media and in galleries, Caroline identified a group of artists, leaders and innovators in contemporary abstraction, who would shine both individually and as a group.
Driven to Abstraction will be on view March 1 – April 13, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 1, 6-8pm
