A Precious Artistic Moment: Paintings by Catherine Hinkle

June 22, 2013 - September 15, 2013

The paintings of Catherine Hinkle (1926-1974) are abstract “color experiences.” Hinkle studied art at Chicago’s Institute of Design with Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, who called her his “little color genius.” In her brief career, Hinkle created a body of work that, to this day, explores the spiritual aspects of non-objective art. As the artist wrote, “The key to understanding my work is not to see what is painted, but rather to feel it.”

The majority of the works in the exhibition are from the collection of the late Marilyn Hinkle. The exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of Tish Loveless.
