Sigmund Abeles: Shades of Life
On view through October 16, 2022
Columbia Museum of Art
Columbia, South Carolina

Throughout his career, Sigmund Abeles (b. 1934) has maintained a commitment to realism. Though an accomplished painter and sculptor, Abeles has long been active as a printmaker. His graphic work demonstrates a uniquely intimate approach to figural subjects as well as remarkable draftsmanship. Drawn entirely from the CMA Collection, this selection of works on paper explores the artist’s perceptive renderings of daily life.
