The Art of Movement: Alexander Calder, George Rickey & Tim Prentice
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 6:30-8:00pm
Organized by The Westmoreland’s Chief Curator Barbara L. Jones, The Art of Movement brings together the work of three fascinating artists, Alexander Calder (1898-1976), George Rickey (1907-2002), and Tim Prentice (b. 1930), all of whom are leading proponents of kinetic art. All three use repetitive abstract patterns, work with balance and counterweights, use no mechanical or electrical operating parts, and wait for the air to activate their work.
The Art of Movement is supported by the Hillman Exhibition Fund of The Westmoreland Museum of American Art.
