Amon Carter - Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind

Exhibition on Display: September 19, 2020-April 18, 2021

The more you look, the more you see. Beginning in the 1960s, artist Eleanore Mikus (1927-2017) created monochromatic, contemplative abstractions that respond to the light and shadows of their surroundings in an almost sculptural way. These experimental compositions draw you in, rewarding those willing to linger in front of her subtle, sometimes puzzling, pieces with moments of peaceful calm.

Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind brings together rarely seen prints that Mikus created at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in 1968. Here, Mikus translated her signature style of painting into the medium of printmaking. Meditations draws from the Carter’s deep collection of works on paper, which includes more than 2,500 Tamarind prints from the 1960s, making the Carter one of the few museums in the country with nearly comprehensive holdings from this workshop, which pioneered a revival in the fine art of lithography.
 
About Amon Carter Museum Of American Art

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art was established through the generosity of Amon G. Carter Sr. (1879-1955) to house his collection of paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell; to collect, preserve, and exhibit the finest examples of American art; and to serve an educational role through exhibitions, publications, and programs devoted to the study of American art.
