MINDY WEISEL | NOT NEUTRAL
In Memory of Fran Eizenstat
September 3 – December 28, 2013
The Kreeger Museum is pleased to announce the opening to the public of Mindy Weisel | Not Neutral on September 3, 2013. This exhibition is comprised of three significant bodies of work that parallel one another in large-scale human and environmental tragedies – Paintings of the Holocaust (ca. 1980), Survival of Beauty (2010), and After Tohoku (2012). In each series Weisel reveals her exploration of deep emotion through color, gestural marks, surface tension, and composition. These works are profound expressions of the triumph of beauty, reconciliation, and healing over human tragedy, loss, and destruction.
“The Art of Mindy Weisel and the Relevance of Abstract Expressionism”
Thursday, November 14, 6:30-7:30 pm Lecture by Dr. Erich Keel
