GLENS FALLS — The Hyde will feature two exhibitions devoted to the printed work of abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday at 161 Warren St. The “Slow Curve” exhibit will be in the Charles R. Wood Gallery, and “Fruits & Flowers” in the Whitney-Renz Gallery.
Kelly is one of the most influential abstract artists in the postwar era. With more than 70 prints, “Slow Curve” examines this ground-breaking artist’s experimentation with curved fields of color, ranging from tight ellipses and shapes with rounded corners to broad arcs and segments. The accompanying show, “Fruits & Flowers,” reveals the root sources for many of Kelly’s geometric shapes, derived from line-drawn images of plants, fruits and flowers, through a selection of 26 lithographs.
General admission is $ 12 and free for children ages 12 and younger. For more information, call 518-792-1761.
