Let us gather to discussion Abstract Expressionism, its place in Art History and social history, how and why it was born, how it grew and developed, and what impact it had upon art. Some of the big figures of Abstract Expressionism that come to mind are Pollock, Rothko, Newman, Motherwell, and de Kooning, but some of us will surely bring more artists to the table. What impact has Abstract Expressionism had upon us personally? Who among our creators has tried painting in the style and spirit of Abstract Expression. Is it easier or more difficult? What can every painter today learn from this movement?
