Surprising, playful, and provocative, the exhibition will highlight a unique selection of non-objective works by Group A members. Using color, shape, size, scale, and, in some cases, the process itself, the featured artists share a language—both deeply personal and universal—grounded in the abstract.
Kate Lydon, exhibition curator, is the Director of Exhibitions at Contemporary Craft where she oversees all aspects of exhibitions at the main Strip District galleries and at the BNY Mellon satellite gallery in downtown Pittsburgh.
