Art during this period was being taught in a way that encouraged the students to experiment and develop their own voice, yet there were still strong influences from teachers to students, among the students themselves, and probably from student to teacher, both in philosophy and style. Nevertheless, there continued to be a strong movement toward a more personal less objective means of expression.
Out of this learning environment, grew life-long friendships and associations that kept some of these artists in touch with others and their work.
This exhibit explores the work of this select group of artists and their provenance as each has developed their own unique style. Threads of common language can often be found between and among them as they grew out of the shared an environment of aesthetic synthesis fostered by teachers and expanded by students.

To be announced
Of this exhibit Nate says, “For this project I wanted to explore what my paintings would look like in a more physical form, a space that could be navigated by a viewer using more senses than the eyes. What kind of materials would be used? How would the representation of space on a canvas translate into an environment? Why not use skills and tools used and acquired through other lines of work to create something different? With an assortment of materials from previous projects I set about creating the elements for a space that I call the Blues.”
AXOM Gallery is pleased to announce our new exhibition, “The Visionary works of Cathal Brendan O’Toole”. Cathal O’Toole was a painter, printmaker and teacher born in Dublin, Ireland on September 2, 1904. Trained as a sign painter, O’Toole then decided to study fine art at the Glasgow School of Art.
