This exhibition focuses on American art selected from the collection of prints and drawings from the Western Gallery and from the Washington Art Consortium. The Western Gallery is a founding member of this consortium - a unique group in the nation - who own together American works on paper (1945-1975). Specific subject matter relating to the urban environment and landscape dominate the American scene from the 1920s-40s. These earlier psychological and social themes prevail but on a more universal level during the rise of formal abstraction during the 1950s-60s. During the sixties and seventies artists utilized drawing to reflect popular culture as well as to project conceptual operations.
