Prints by Frank Stella

June 11-Septmeber 6

Prints by Frank Stella features 14 dynamic, colorful prints from the artist, known mostly for his work in the areas of minimalism and post-painterly abstraction.

Though originally a painter, Stella began his extended engagement with printmaking in the mid-1960s, working first with master printer Kenneth Tyler at Gemini G.E.L. He used lithography, screenprinting, intaglio and relief printing, often combining them in complex mixed medium prints, regularly named after paintings exploring similar themes. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, Stella created a large body of work that responded in a general way to Herman melville's Moby Dick, several of which are included in this exhibition.

This exhibition is on loan from the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Alabama.

Reproduction, including downloading of Stella works is prohibited by copyright laws and international conventions without the express written permission of Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.
