Mid-Century American 

When: Nov. 9-Dec. 31 2012

The Triangle's best print gallery offers a crash course in American art from the 1930s through the 1950s with an exhibition and sale of prints through the end of the year. While it's common knowledge that Jackson Pollock was a student of Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Students League in New York in the '30s, the visual linkages between New Deal-era social realism and the wilds of Abstract Expressionism don't exactly hit you over the head with a bottle. The same gestural rhythms, however, are coded underneath the compositions. Assembled entirely from private collections, the show includes prints by Benton, Reginald Marsh, Martin Louis, Robert Gwathmey, Peggy Bacon, Jacob Landau, Georges Schreiber and many more. Friday's opening reception runs 6–9 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
