Hadieh Shafie at Sheldon Museum of Art

29 Nov 2020

Hadieh Shafie is featured as part of Small Abstractions: Highlights from Sheldon’s Permanent Collection, at Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA.

Underscoring the distinction of Sheldon’s collection of twentieth-century abstract paintings, this exhibition features small-scale works that give insight to a wide range of abstraction’s visual vocabulary. These works offer close encounters with the materials and marks employed by various artists to create nonfigurative art.

Josef Albers (1888–1976), Polly Apfelbaum (born 1955), Burgoyne Diller (1906–1965), Morgan Russell (1886–1953), and Esphyr Slobodkina (1908–2002) are among the other artists featured.

Small Abstractions is on view in the first floor north galleries, including the Charlotte and Charles Rain Gallery.
