American Abstract Artists 75th Anniversary featured artwork selected by OK Harris Works of Art from 77 current members of the organization as well as ephemera representing some of the group’s past history. This coherent exhibition spanned several generations of artists and included a broad range of approaches to abstraction. Works displayed covered a variety of mediums, sizes and the exhibition included many large scale paintings.
OK Harris Works of Art was founded by Ivan C. Karp in 1969. It was the first gallery on West Broadway and was instrumental in the development of SoHo as an art district in Manhattan. In its spacious facility, OK Harris is able to mount five one-person shows simultaneously and has seven such exhibitions in the course of a year. The entire gallery space was devoted to this museum scale exhibition in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of American Abstract Artists.
