Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld: Cosmic Connections is the third exhibition of the artist’s work drawn from the Museum’s collection. Drawn from multiple series of work, this exhibition includes several of the artist’s large abstract paintings and related drawings made in the late 1980s and early 1990s. As the artist increasingly identified as a poet and visual artist, she began to create abstract, gestural works referencing the landscape and the cosmos. Two bodies of work, Cosmic Connections and Landscape Abstractions, reflect Kleefeld’s deepening understanding of her position within what she calls “the flow.” Recognizing herself as a creative being within a larger natural universe, Kleefeld’s work from this period expresses her continuing exploration of spiritual movements and consciousness-expansive practices. Including the most representative works from this period in her oeuvre, Cosmic Connections will remain on view through 2024.
