Museum of Fine Arts ‘Magnetic Fields’ Exhibit
Showcases Abstract Art by African-American Women
The Museum of Fine Arts at 255 Beach Drive in St. Petersburg is the final stop for the first American exhibition dedicated solely to African American women artists working in abstract art, “Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today.” The ongoing exhibit will continue until August 5.
“Magnetic Fields” brings together 45 abstract paintings, sculptures and works on paper by 21 accomplished artists who have historically been overlooked by the mainstream. The exhibition showcases an intergenerational group of African American women artists, born between the 1890s and 1980s, who have worked in abstraction, a school of art defined by the use of color, shape, lines and form to convey the artists’ ideas.
