"Restraint and Limitation" explores trends in contemporary abstract painting via the work of three accomplished women, Anna Buckner of Indiana, Sharon Butler of Connecticut and Gianna Commito of Ohio. The three primary artists represent different stages of their careers and show commitment to the aesthetics and procedures inherent in painting practice today, yet bring diverse pressures to the form.
