Abstract expressionists who happen to be female have been in the spotlight lately (better late than never, since this is an art style of the mid-20th century). Books and exhibitions highlighting such artists as Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner and Elaine de Kooning have garnered a lot of attention. Although not as well-known as those mentioned above, Rosemary Burkholder is part of this group. Regionally (she’s from Ohio), she held her own among her teachers, Jack Meanwell and Paul Chidlaw (known as the father of Cincinnati abstract expressionism). Burkholder is being celebrated in this solo show at the Actors Theatre Gallery, with walls lined with colorful, uplifting paintings.
