The Asheville Art Museum. The Asheville Art Museum.

The Asheville Art Museum will present “What You See Is What You See: American Abstraction After 1950,” on view Nov. 28-March 15. This vivid and dynamic exhibition considers the phases of color field painting from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Beginning in the late 1950s, art critic Clement Greenberg noted a tendency toward all-over color — or color field — in the works of several of the first generation abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still.
