Albert Patecky: Abstractions
October 29 – December 22, 2005
Albert Patecky (1906-94) arrived in Portland in 1928 and worked as a cartoonist and illustrator during the 1930s and early 40s. An opportunity to study at the Art Students League in New York in 1945 introduced him to cubism and abstraction, and during the decade of the 1950s, he gained an international reputation as a non-objective painter. The exhibition will focus on his experimental, abstract works.
