Line Color Illusion: 40 Years of Julian Stanczak showcases paintings and prints collected by the Akron Art Museum since 1970. The exhibition documents both Julian Stanczak’s impressive career as a master of color and the museum’s longstanding commitment to his work.

A longtime resident of Northeastern Ohio and retired Cleveland Institute of Art professor, Julian Stanczak earned international recognition as a pioneer of “Op Art,” a style based on optical illusion, following his first New York exhibition at Martha Jackson Gallery in 1964. Soon after, Stanczak’s work--which he characterizes as perceptual abstraction—was included in the Museum of Modern Art’s landmark exhibition The Responsive Eye. Stanczak has continued to draw upon his deep understanding of color theory to explore how colors interact and are perceived. While his signature motifs have evolved, his paintings and prints over the years are characterized by lines and colors that set up vibrations and create pulsating patterns.

The Akron Art Museum hosted one of the first public museum exhibitions of Julian Stanczak’s work and acquired the painting Dual Glare in 1970. Since that time the museum has augmented its collection with paintings and screen prints representing the variety of materials, techniques and formal elements that Stanczak continues to explore.

This exhibition is organized by the Akron Art Museum and made possible by a gift from the Kenneth L. Calhoun Charitable Trust, Key Bank, Trustee.
