From experiments in pure color and form to paintings that turn depictions of the outside world into subtle arrangements of textures and shapes, their images take the practice of abstract art in new directions that challenge and surprise the viewer. With approaches that encompass acrylics, oils, giclée prints and digital photography, each artist has a strong personal vision. The spontaneity that abstraction permits can be seen in all of their work, but that freedom is channeled in an impressive variety of ways. Sharp, bold graphic patterns will predominate in one artist’s work, while soft, elusive clouds of color will set the tone in another’s. There is an equally broad range of textures on display, from smooth blocks of acrylics, to shells attached to the surface of a seaside scene. The conversation that results when these approaches are brought together shines a light on where abstraction is heading.

Pathway to Abstraction opens on June 14th, 2016 and runs through July 5th, 2016 with an opening reception on June 16th, from 6 – 8PM. Entrance is free.
