The definition of abstract art, such as it is, refers to a visual language of color, shape, line, and form from which compositions exist with a degree of independence from visual reference. Moving from its origins in the 20th century, into the 21 st century, the genre has expanded to respond to the stimuli of the times, which may include new materials or new perspectives on the tried and true. Artists are casting about for ways to utilize a broader range of materials, including found or reclaimed objects, metals, fabric, or photography. All of these can be found in this wide-ranging show, by local artists who opened up to interpret “abstract” broadly and spectacularly.

The Ceramics may follow the definition of abstract or be more utilitarian- or both!
