Ale Fest returns to Tremont in July. Early bird tickets are available right now!

Adolph Gottlieb was one of the founders of abstract expressionism in this country. The Allen Memorial Art Museum’s Adolph Gottlieb: Early Prints features etchings and sketches the artist created in New York between 1933 and 1946. Like his later, more famous work -- see "The Rape of Persephone," a painting in the museum’s permanent collection -- the prints take a surrealistic trip through form and shape. You’re not quite sure what you’re seeing at first, but closer inspection reveals discernable images -- like a pair of grasping hands and an upside-down face.
Dec. 20-Jan. 28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 20. Continues through Jan. 28
