$6,000 for an exhibition with accompanying catalogue on artist Alan Shields, organized by director Dona Warner. Blurring the lines between painting, printmaking, sculpture, and installation, Shields produced complicated process-oriented work with a bold approach to color, line and composotion. By abandoning the conventions of the stretched canvas, he increasingly worked with handmade paper as a sculptural medium that he presented in numerous New York galleries.
