Terry Date, writer for the Andover Townsman, recommends that anyone interested in modern art should head to Phillips-Andover's Addison Gallery of American Art and check out their latest exhibition, “Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective," open through July 30.
Stella, a 1954 graduate of Phillips, has for more than 50 years created abstract art including paintings, drawings, and prints. More than 100 of his works went on display April 21, in what is the artist’s first major print retrospective since 1982.
Organized by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in Wisconsin and curated by Richard H. Axsom, support for the exhibition and related educational and outreach programs is supported by a grant from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.
A pioneer of minimalism in the 1960s, Stella continues to experiment and innovate, creating some of the most daring work to be seen today.
