February 2024 - Leaning Into Abstraction Show - Click Here to Expand

February 1-29, 2024 Online Viewing: February 2 - April 5, 2024

Non Juried

This show seeks to give a forum to artists who do not attempt to present an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve the desired effects.

There may or may not be recognizable objects represented in the art work, but accurate depiction is not the avenue by which the artist seeks to achieve their goals.
