The Fort Lowell Neighborhood Association presents a one-time exhibition and sale of the Abstract Expressionism artwork from the estate of Nik Krevitsky (1914 – 1991).
Swirling form and movement, applied in highly charged layers of tension, Nik Krevitsky vacillated between powerful figurative imagery and abstract work. He developed his artistic maturity at a pivotal moment within the evolution of American modernism. Through his expressive compositions, critique and, as art educator, influenced the regional modern movement of the American West and developed a multi-media fiber art process called Stitchery.
Krevitsky’s avant-garde work was unquestionably on the leading edge, and despite being shown throughout the country and receiving critical praise between the mid 1940s through the 1980s, his pieces were accessioned into the collection of only a few museums. In a contemporary critical assessment of his work, Krevitsky was a fine art practitioner ahead of his time. His influence on fiber arts, art education, modern dance and the development of modernism in the Southwest was significant and viewing his work within this broader context shows an artist whose art captures the essence of American Abstract Expressionism.
This is one time opportunity to acquire a important piece of Tucson modernist art.
