Saturday, May 5th, two new exhibits open at the Flint Institute of Arts (FIA). “Abstract Expressionism: Then and Now” and “The Golden Age of Painting, 1600-1800 from the Speed Art Museum” both open that day for art lovers to enjoy.

Abstract Expressionism was the first specifically American art movement to achieve international influence. Many of the artists represented in this exhibition experimented with new and powerfully expressive techniques, creating images that did not represent recognizable objects or familiar subjects. Artists like Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Robert Motherwell and Willem de Koonig are now household names, but worked in relative obscurity in the 1940′s when their movement began.

The Golden Age of Painting features works of the masters like Rembrandt, Rubens and Ruisdael (to name just a few). These old masters from the 1600′s to the 1800′s from across the European continent are represented in this exhibition on loan from the Speed Art Museum of Louisville, Kentucky.

Both exhibits will be at the FIA until August 19th. The FIA is located on East Kearsley Street, between the Flint Public Library and the Longway Planetarium.

Saturdays at the FIA are Target Free Saturdays, where you can enjoy the art for free, compliments of Target.
