Suitcase Paintings

September 27 October 26, 2008

Organized by Thomas McCormick for the Georgia Museum of Art, Suitcase Paintings presented the work of artists normally associated with large-scale paintings. The exhibition showcased more than 50 canvases under 24 inches that achieve the same emotion and action of larger works. The exhibition featured several well-known Abstract Expressionist painters such as Ralph Arnold, William Baziotes, Franz Kline, Joan Mitchell, and Robert Motherwell.
