$10,000 toward Tranquil Power: The Art of Perle Fine, a traveling retrospective exhibition on the painter with accompanying catalogue and symposium, guest-curated by Susan Knowles. At a young age, Fine moved from her native Boston to New York City to study at the Art Students League and with Hans Hofmann, before ultimately moving to Long Island in the mid 1950s where she built her studio. Fine was interested in the metaphysics of pure abstraction and created work that explored the balance and tension between vibrant forms existing in a grid-structured space.
