Vincent Longo

When: Feb. 6-May 1 2016

“I hope to come upon something unfamiliar using common forms, repeating them and at times finding some aspect of myself hitherto unrecognized,” Longo writes in his artist statement. “Centers, Circles, Squares, Grids: Works by Vincent Longo, 1958 - 1976” opens this Saturday at the Bennington Museum. The printmaker and painter, who taught at Bennington College from 1957 to 1967, was recognized for merging abstract expressionism and printmaking techniques and for contributing to printmaking’s recognition as a “serious” medium. As the exhibit is arranged chronologically, visitors can observe Longo’s artistic evolution, including his shift from organic forms to the structure of Buddhist mandalas to completely grid-centric works.
