Summer gallery shows typically have a little bit of everything, but at D. Wigmore Fine Art in the Crown Building at 730 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street in Manhattan, the tension between competing artistic styles -- and philosophies -- has been ratcheted up a notch.

"Competing Ideologies: American Works on Paper from the 1930s-1940s" takes a look at the divide between naturalism -- both by artists devoted to the American Scene and to Social Realism, and abstraction -- both by spiritually oriented artists and Formalists.
