‘Mid-Century American’ at Adam Cave Fine Art

Adam Cave Art is featuring a rare group of original prints from the 1930s through ’50s.

The roughly 25 works, all from private collections, track the progression in American art from the social realism of the WPA years to the full-fledged development of abstract expressionism. Some of the most famous works in this show are by artists that flowed freely from painting to printmaking. “Down the River” by Thomas Hart Benton and “Which Way” by Martin Lewis exhibit the dramatic storytelling that characterized art from the ’30s. From the ’50s comes the pure abstraction of Californian Leonard Edmondson and longtime Brown University professor Walter Feldman.

The exhibit at the gallery at 115 ½ Hargett St., Raleigh, continues through Dec. 31. For more information, go to www.adamcavefineart.com.
