Drawn from one of the finest collections of expressionist and Pop art prints and studio ceramics in the region, Cross Currents in 20th Century Art was noted for its expansive range of subject matter, visual power and engaging imagery. Carefully selected from the broad and varied collection assembled by Anne and Harry Wollman of Vermont, this exhibition offered a personal perspective on important art movements that dominated America in the 20th century. The dynamic, colorful and satirical work by Pop artists Jim Dine, Jasper Johns, and David Hockney, and expressionist printmakers Robert Motherwell and Rufino Tamayo are definitive images of the post-War generation. The range of ceramic pieces included functional vessels from classic forms by Warren MacKenzie to funky pots and playful constructions by Adrian Saxe and Akio Takamori to sculptures by William Daley and Ruth Duckworth. The Wollman exhibition also featured many important artists not exhibited before at the Currier, such as Francesco Clemente, Viola Frey and George Ohr.
