2023 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).
