Southampton’s 20th Century Influencers:

Jane Wilson, Artist of the Ethereal

Thursday, November 18th, 11am
Jane Wilson, an artist best known for the ethereal landscapes of her later career, was part of the midcentury ferment that put New York City—and to some extent eastern Long Island–at the artistic avant-garde. Coming of age just as Abstract Expressionism was about to secure a lock on the art world, she forged her own path. An active member of the group of artists and writers, who were breaking new ground, she experimented with abstraction but remained strongly attracted to landscape. Her big skies are abstractly rendered, yet draw viewers in by their nearly palpable atmospheric moods.
