This summer, Lawrence Fine Art in East Hampton is welcoming the art of Anna Walinska as part of its Summer of Abstraction.
In an exhibition titled Anna Walinska: Abstractions from the Fifties and Sixties, Lawrence Fine Art will display Walinska’s installations through Labor Day.
“I’m excited to be showing works from the collection on the East End of Long Island, an area where Abstract Expressionism flourished and a place where Walinska enjoyed spending time,” says Rosina Rubin, niece of the artist and curator of Walinska’s legacy.
Walinska’s art has been on view in many museum collections including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, just to name a few.
Walinska used and experimented with any supplies and colors that intrigued her; she wrote that with her art she “sought to convey the spirit of a search without boundaries.”
Throughout her lifetime she had created more than 2,000 pieces in materials ranging from canvas to paper with oils, watercolors, charcoal, pastel, ink and more.
“The works in the exhibition represent one period of Walinska’s creative endeavors, which ranged from figurative black and white line drawings and colorful pastels, portraits and collages, to bold abstracts,” Rubin says.
Anna Walinska::Abstractions From the Fifties and Sixties an opening reception will be held Saturday, August 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. Lawrence Fine Art is located on 37 Newtown Lane in East Hampton.
