Simply Abstract at Del Ray Artisans Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, January 6 from 7-9pm

Exhibit Dates: January 6-29, 2017

Artists relish the opportunity to break away from the norm—be different and free from the styles and traditions of realistic art. Local area artists, including Del Ray Artisans members, present in the Simply Abstract exhibit their unique compositions using a visual language of shape, form, color, and line. Some have no representational content whatsoever, while others keep one foot in reality, or somewhere in between. Join us at our opening reception, Friday, January 6 from 7-9pm. This exhibit will be juried by nationally known abstract artist Marsha Staiger. Curators Betsy Mead and Judy Lynn will award prizes for best artwork.

Mark your calendars for movie night featuring Pollock on Saturday, January 14 from 7-9pm, and “Hands on: Collaborate Abstractly” on Saturday, January 28 from 2-3:30pm—a workshop where students partner up to create unique abstract art. Come and discover the diversity of abstract art! For more information on these special events, visit DelRayArtisans.org/programs
