    4. ART EXHIBIT: Landscapes / Mindscapes: Selections from the Wells Fargo Collection
      5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Landscape/Mindscape: Selections from the  Wells Fargo Collection, features some of the twentieth century’s most  prominent artists working in wide range of styles, from Pop Art to Color Field  painting and various forms of abstraction. Andy Warhol offers up his  trademark multiple images in a series of three sunsets printed in rich, varied  colors. Roy Lichtenstein renders sun, sea and sky in bright color and  simplified form. Jim Dine offers a glimpse of a landscape through an elaborate  wrought iron gate in one work, and sets a heart down amidst a field of sparse  flowers in another. Helen Frankenthaler, known  for her “stain” paintings—in which she poured thinned paint over raw canvas to  achieve clouds of rich color—adapts the process to printmaking in glowing  compositions. While abstract, her work is drawn from the natural world, and the  titles—Bilbao and The Red Sea—offer clues to her  inspiration. While the “mindscapes” in  this exhibition are all thought-provoking, many are also both fun and figurative.  The night explodes in brilliant color in Jennifer Bartlett’s Earth Fireworks. Christo and  Jean-Claude, installation artists known for wrapping both manmade and natural  landmarks in yards of fabric, offer a view of their Running Fence installation, an 18-foot-high structure that ran for 24 miles through California’s hilly Sonoma  County. Find these and the work of  many other extraordinary artists—among them Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell,  Phillip Pearlstein, and Kiki Smith—in Landscape/Mindscape:  Selections from the Wells Fargo  Collection this summer. On display through August 17.

    3. ART EXHIBIT: Landscapes / Mindscapes: Selections from the Wells Fargo Collection
      5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Landscape/Mindscape: Selections from the  Wells Fargo Collection, features some of the twentieth century’s most  prominent artists working in wide range of styles, from Pop Art to Color Field  painting and various forms of abstraction. Andy Warhol offers up his  trademark multiple images in a series of three sunsets printed in rich, varied  colors. Roy Lichtenstein renders sun, sea and sky in bright color and  simplified form. Jim Dine offers a glimpse of a landscape through an elaborate  wrought iron gate in one work, and sets a heart down amidst a field of sparse  flowers in another. Helen Frankenthaler, known  for her “stain” paintings—in which she poured thinned paint over raw canvas to  achieve clouds of rich color—adapts the process to printmaking in glowing  compositions. While abstract, her work is drawn from the natural world, and the  titles—Bilbao and The Red Sea—offer clues to her  inspiration. While the “mindscapes” in  this exhibition are all thought-provoking, many are also both fun and figurative.  The night explodes in brilliant color in Jennifer Bartlett’s Earth Fireworks. Christo and  Jean-Claude, installation artists known for wrapping both manmade and natural  landmarks in yards of fabric, offer a view of their Running Fence installation, an 18-foot-high structure that ran for 24 miles through California’s hilly Sonoma  County. Find these and the work of  many other extraordinary artists—among them Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell,  Phillip Pearlstein, and Kiki Smith—in Landscape/Mindscape:  Selections from the Wells Fargo  Collection this summer. On display through August 17.

    3. ART EXHIBIT: Landscapes / Mindscapes: Selections from the Wells Fargo Collection
      5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Landscape/Mindscape: Selections from the  Wells Fargo Collection, features some of the twentieth century’s most  prominent artists working in wide range of styles, from Pop Art to Color Field  painting and various forms of abstraction. Andy Warhol offers up his  trademark multiple images in a series of three sunsets printed in rich, varied  colors. Roy Lichtenstein renders sun, sea and sky in bright color and  simplified form. Jim Dine offers a glimpse of a landscape through an elaborate  wrought iron gate in one work, and sets a heart down amidst a field of sparse  flowers in another. Helen Frankenthaler, known  for her “stain” paintings—in which she poured thinned paint over raw canvas to  achieve clouds of rich color—adapts the process to printmaking in glowing  compositions. While abstract, her work is drawn from the natural world, and the  titles—Bilbao and The Red Sea—offer clues to her  inspiration. While the “mindscapes” in  this exhibition are all thought-provoking, many are also both fun and figurative.  The night explodes in brilliant color in Jennifer Bartlett’s Earth Fireworks. Christo and  Jean-Claude, installation artists known for wrapping both manmade and natural  landmarks in yards of fabric, offer a view of their Running Fence installation, an 18-foot-high structure that ran for 24 miles through California’s hilly Sonoma  County. Find these and the work of  many other extraordinary artists—among them Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell,  Phillip Pearlstein, and Kiki Smith—in Landscape/Mindscape:  Selections from the Wells Fargo  Collection this summer. On display through August 17.
