Warhol’s influence apparent in current Kress Gallery exhibit

Christopher Turner thought about Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, how both had their own set of struggles in the art world.

Look at their work now. It’s exhibited in museums and major art venues throughout the world.

And though the Kress Gallery isn’t one of those venues, it can be a place to showcase these artists’ legacy.

As for Andrew Robertson, he immediately credits Pollock’s free style as influencing his own abstract expressionist work.
