1940s - Slobodkina's Work Gains Attention

During the 1940s, Slobodkina developed a mature abstract style and an impressive exhibition record for a young artist. An active member of the American Abstract Artists, she served as the group’s treasurer in 1924 and secretary from 1945-1960. She participated in AAA annual exhibitions and other important group and solo shows in New York City. A.E. Gallatin organized Slobodkina’s first major one-person exhibition in 1942 at his Museum of Living Art. In a review of this show, art critic Henry McBride noted that Slobodkina “has refinement, good color, and a sense of picture-making among her assets.”
