Monterey Museum of Art Presents In Process : Ingrid Calame

The Monterey Museum of Art presents a landmark exhibition of work by one of the country’s leading contemporary abstract painters, Ingrid Calame. Open OCTOBER 30, 2010-FEBRUARY 27, 2011.

Calame is known for creating large-scale, abstract works inspired by tracings of the stains and graffiti found on the streets and sidewalks in cities across the country.

Monterey Museum of Art Executive Director, E. Michael Whittington says, “Ingrid Calame is an exceptional artist whose stunningly beautiful works include a simple concept—tracing the everyday spills and stains of our surroundings—and rigorous technique. This makes her an ideal choice for the Museum’s In Process series.” He adds, “Of special interest will be the site-specific, ephemeral work created for the Museum’s Dart Gallery executed directly on the gallery walls.”
