Mary Abbott: The Living Possibility of Paint

On view through July 25
Free with museum admission, which is by advance reservation.
Unvaccinated adults and children are required to wear masks in the house and studio.
Throughout her long career–she died in 2019 at age 98– Mary Abbott pursued a sensuous approach to abstraction, exploring paint’s “living possibility.” An active member of the abstract expressionist cohort, with studios in New York City and Southampton, she also traveled widely and was influenced by the vibrant tropical environment of Haiti and the Virgin Islands. This exhibition, with loans from the McCormick Gallery in Chicago and the   Mougins Museum of Classical Art, focuses on her paintings of the 1950s, when her gestural canvases and works on paper abound with spontaneous expression.

Seeing Past the Future

Online through August 31
A virtual exhibition of works by 2020 Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant recipients, “Seeing Past the Future” was conceived by Shimon Attie, the inaugural Charles C. Bergman Endowed Visiting Professor of Studio Art at Stony Brook University’s College of Arts and Sciences, in conjunction with the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center.
In consultation with Norman L. Kleeblatt, a former chief curator at the Jewish Museum in New York City, and with curatorial assistance from Talya Feldman, Mr. Attie has chosen a group of  29 artists who have received Pollock-Krasner Foundation grants since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Picasso in Pollock

July 29 – October 31

Free with museum admission, which is by advance reservation.
Unvaccinated adults and children are required to wear masks in the house and studio.
From the late 1930s through the end of his career, Pollock responded to many aspects of Picasso’s oeuvre. The exhibition, a hybrid of actual works and replicas, traces those influences in key examples, including the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center’s Pollock painting, Untitled (Composition with Red Arc and Horses), ca. 1938, which contains a motif adapted from Picasso’s 1937 mural, Guernica.
A dedicated website with an essay by the distinguished scholar Pepe Karmel and a 3D tour of the installation, hosted by Artland, supplement the exhibition, which is supported by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, the Singer Foundation, and a research grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
