 OUR HISTORY

INTRODUCTION to the 1955-56 exhibition catalog - by Harold Weston, President
Harold Weston (1894-1972) (self portrait in 1939)
Our organization was founded in 1940 by artists of independent
tendencies primarily interested in the modern movement. Our members
believe in freedom of artistic expression and are opposed to arbitrary
control of thought or action in whatever form it may exist. Recognizing
that art is a factor through which the civilization of a people may be
judged, our hope is to add in some measure to the development of
painting and sculpture in the United States. Although, for practical
reasons, we have kept our membership below one hundred, it
represents a cross-section of modern art in America.
