September 1st - September 26th, 2019
Opening Reception: September 7, 2019 6-9 PM


Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present, “Women of Abstraction”, a group exhibition of new works by artists Mary Long, Martica Griffin, Carol Mode, Sisavanh Phouthavong, Mildred Jarrett, and Jeanie Gooden. In their latest exhibition, Tinney Contemporary aims to celebrate the complexities of abstraction. In not only its physical manifestation; but through its meaning, history, and energy, as well as, the artists who create it through their own unique lenses.

As a result of the lasting appeal of the Abstraction Movement, there is now an increased desire to uncover and recognize the women of the many periods of Abstraction throughout history. Vanguards like Joan Mitchell and Helen Frankenthaler — who's groundbreaking work was largely misunderstood — have paved the way for the abstract artists of the past century. In 2019, being an abstract painter holds a highly dynamic and diverse set of meanings— especially when compared to the pioneers in the previous century. Each artist approaches material, shape, color, and space in ways that uniquely reflect their own cultivated experiences and ideas.
