2021 Juried Abstract Exhibition

Abstract art is non-representational: it does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of visual reality (such as a person, an object, a landscape)  but instead uses shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.  Even works that loosely depict a recognizable scene, person, object etc. are not considered abstract because we can recognize the subject (so these works are considered representational).
