Turner Print Museum Presents "Abstract Expressionism" Exhibit Through Feb. 24
The Turner’s first exhibition of the new year, “American International: Abstract Expressionism,” is a visual compilation of print artists’ internal musings and reflections.
The exhibition continues through February 24 at the Turner Print Museum Gallery, located in the Meriam Library at Chico State.
For “American International: Abstract Expressionism,” Turner Print Museum curator Catherine Sullivan collaborated with CSU, Chico graduate intern students Trinity Connelley, Adria Davis and Willow Starkey, and undergraduate student Maura Cavanaugh. Together they chose works from The Turner’s 3500-plus print collection that demonstrate the far-reaching influence of Abstract Expressionism, a distinctive American art movement.

Augmenting the exhibit will be works by local artists Claudia Steel, Jean Souders, and the late Ken Morrow; prints by these artsits were selected to show the far-reaching influence of this East Coast-based art movement.
