DESCRIPTION

From a distance, an artwork by Robert Forman appears to be many paintings at once, layered in some mysterious way. Up close, the mystery deepens: Instead of paint, the surface is composed of many colored threads, laid down with as much complex color theory as any Impressionist painting—or maybe more so, because Forman’s pictures have added dimensions of overlapping images and patterns. Learn more about the artist and his unique technique at the opening reception for his new exhibit, "Uncommon Threads," at a free reception in the Museum's Upper Gallery on January 26, 2 - 5 pm.
