Chromatic Space presents a broad range of works by American Abstract Artists and invited guests, in celebration of the organization’s 80th anniversary. This exhibition, held at the Shirley Fiterman Art Center, seeks to illuminate the ways that artists use color in their work to explore the possibilities of depth, motion, scale, and atmosphere. From the rigorous flatness of hard edge painting to the celestial expanse of color field work, color can enhance or defy the flatness of the canvas, and activate the work in an exciting variety of ways. Dialogues of translucence and opacity, movement and stasis, surface and depth are played out through the use of color in the work of different abstract artists.

Participating artists are: Alice Adams, Steven Alexander, Martin Ball, Siri Berg, Emily Berger, Susan Bonfils, Power Boothe, Sharon Brant, Henry Brown, Marvin Brown, James O. Clark,  Mark Dagley, Gabriele Evertz, Gail Gregg, James Gross, Lynne Harlow, Mara Held, Daniel G. Hill, Phillis Ideal, Julian Jackson, Roger Jorgensen, James Juszczyk, Cecily Kahn, Marthe Keller, Iona Kleinhaut, Irene Lawrence, Jane Logemann, Vincent Longo, David Mackenzie, Stephen Maine, Katinka Mann, Nancy Manter, Joanne Mattera, Creighton Michael, Manfred Mohr, Judith Murray, John Obuck, Jim Osman, Corey Postiglione, Lucio Pozzi, Raquel Rabinovich, Ce Roser, Irene Rousseau, Anne Russinof, Lorenza Sannai, Mary Schiliro, James Seawright & Mimi Garrard, Claire Seidl, Edward Shalala, Susan Smith, Robert Swain, Richard Timperio, Li Trincere, Kim Uchiyama, Lynn Umlauf, Clover Vail, Vera Vasek, Don Voisine, Merrill Wagner, Stephen Westfall, Jeanne Wilkinson, Mark Williams, Thornton Willis, and Nola Zirin
