Organic/Geometric Exhibition

September 2 - 15, 2016


The elements of design are what attracts and holds attention to an artwork. They are found in both realistic and abstract artworks. Artists are encouraged to study and express their interpretation of “shapes” and how they exist in real life or non-objective abstraction. We subconsciously interpret shapes around us in our everyday lives; the slope of a rooftop, plane of a wall, or edging of a grass lawn. These shapes and their relationships to each other can form exciting compositions that we don’t realize until examined more closely. When creating an artwork, artists soon realize that these shapes are the foundation of every great work. In abstract artwork, these relationships become more obvious as they are the surface of what we respond and react to devoid of symbolic association.


Join us for the opening reception on September 2, 6:00 - 8:00pm.
