Thelma Appel: Observed/Abstract

October 4, 2019 - February 9, 2020

A career survey by one of the founders of Bennington College Painters’ Workshop. Appel’s early work features paint-soaked brush strokes on large canvases, recreating the energy, color, and immediacy of vistas in Vermont and across the United States. Appel’s later paintings include visionary imagery created in the aftermath of 9/11 and natural disasters, as well as a body of work based on the Tarot.
