abstract, figurative

The Colors of RAM’s Permanent Collection exhibits work spanning sixty years, reflecting the museum’s focus on exhibiting, educating, collecting, and providing scholarship on the visual arts with an emphasis on American, Californian, and prominent Inland Empire artists.

This exhibit also includes work by significant artists from around the Southland, including painters O. Walter Donnenfeld, Margaret Lawson, and Sara Waterbury.

The featured works are all distinctly different from one another and range from purely abstract to more figurative representations. Each piece represents a carefully constructed comment made by their respective artists, yet they are universally connected through the use of color as a predominant theme within the works themselves. Viewed together, these disparate works reveal the same elements that contribute to their success: compelling texture, subdued light contrasted with saturated color, and an intimate approach to space and composition.
