"minimalism" - Opening Reception September 18, 2008, 6-8 pm

“Art excludes the unnecessary.”  ---Carl Andre

MINIMALISM is a showing of photographic interpretations of this movement by 16 regional artists.  Rooted in post war Western art, Minimalism is most typically associated with American visual arts in the late 1960’s and early 70’s. 

Features often associated with Minimalism, such as geometric, often cubist forms, equality of parts, neutral surfaces and industrial materials, are present in the Chromatics’ show, but in a quiet, subtly creative context. 

The public is invited to the opening reception Thursday evening, September 18, from 6-8 p.m.  The show runs through January 9, 2009.  Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
