Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens Presents “The Surrealist Roberto Matta”

Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens Presents “The Surrealist Roberto Matta”Wednesday, April 16, 6pm-8pm - Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, 2051 Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach

Chilean-born artist Roberto Matta was an international figure whose worldview represented a synthesis of European, American and Latin American cultures. As a member of the Surrealist movement and an early mentor to several Abstract Expressionists, Matta broke with both groups to pursue a highly personal artistic vision. His mature work blended abstraction, figuration and multi-dimensional spaces into complex, cosmic landscapes. Matta’s long and prolific career was defined by a strong social conscience and an intense exploration of his internal and external worlds. Join The Gallery at Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens at 11 am for a guided tour of the exhibition, member & guests reception at 6-8pm.
