This exhibition celebrates Gertrude Kasle (1917–2016), a key figure in the formation of Detroit’s contemporary art community in the 1960s and 70s. A pioneering female gallerist, Kasle provided midwest audiences with a venue in which to experience avant-garde art from centers like New York City, while also supporting and exhibiting regional artists. Featuring a collection of paintings, works on paper, and sculptures from the height of the Abstract Expressionist movement through the early twenty-first century. Join docents as they explore a dynamic moment in Detroit’s cultural history and insight into Kasle’s love of looking and learning. Free

Pop Art made its debut in the 1950s and 1960s, offering a stark contrast to what was then the dominant movement in American art, Abstract Expressionism. Images of popular and commercial culture challenged traditions of fine art, and continue to provide the social commentary today as it did 50 years ago. Join Art Leaders Gallery this June as we celebrate Pop Art with an exhibition full of remarkable artworks inspired by this movement. This collection will feature the artworks of Pedro Velver, Craig Alan, and Pietro Adamo and include original paintings available for purchase. Exhibition runs June 1st -30th Free
