POUR at Schmidt Center Gallery

February 5 – March 23, 2013
Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL

Artists in this exhibition refresh the fluid painting techniques associated with postwar abstraction, while reflecting the influence of digital culture through the process of pouring paint. The exhibition explores why, in our digital age, so many painters continue to “pour” paint to create images and how those images resonate with today’s society.
