Cleveland Institute of Art Presents Masters of Abstraction Gallery Show

One night, two amazing shows, three visionary artists

The work of legendary artists Robert Mangold, Julian Stanczak and Ed Mieczkowski will continue to amaze audiences with two gallery shows in “Masters of Abstraction” at CIA’s Reinberger Galleries. The opening night reception is on Friday November 4, 6-8 pm.

Mangold, one of the country’s preeminent modern painters, will be showcased in a solo show “Continuity and Discontinuity.” This exhibition features four striking large-scale canvases, measuring eight to 20 feet in length and six column structure drawings from 2006. Mangold is known for his visionary work that unites drawing and painting in a way that hadn’t been done prior to the start of the optical art movement. He attended CIA from 1956-1959 before receiving his bachelor's and master's degree from the School of Art and Architecture at Yale University..

Julian Stanczak and Ed Mieczkowski will be featured in the gallery exhibition “Boundary Formations and the Tease of the Familiar.” Both artists are famous for their exploration of the virtues of geometric and perceptual abstraction.

Stanczak, a 1954 CIA graduate and 30-year-plus CIA faculty member, is a true colorist who produced non-referential, abstract art for 60 years. His work resides in museums around the world, including Museum of Modern Art, New York, Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Mieczkowski is long been considered a founding member of the hard-edged, geometric abstraction movement Anomia in the early 1960s. He follows a rigorous, self-imposed program of painting exercise to explore the effects color on visual perception. He is a 1957 CIA graduate and served as a faculty member for nearly 40 years. His work is in the collections of museums of several international museums, including the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art and museums in Poland and Denmark.
