Current Call to Artists:




From Natural to Abstraction

In this exhibit, we would like to express and show all forms of Beauty from the eyes of a variety of artists. Beauty is just a part of art but art is not always beautiful nor it has to be beautiful to be consider art.

Art, in its broadest sense, is a form of communication. It means whatever the artist intends it to mean, and this meaning is shaped by the materials, techniques, and forms it makes use of, as well as the ideas and feelings it creates in its viewers . Art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations.

From its roots, abstraction should mean basically “something pulled or drawn away”. So abstract art is art that has moved away from painting objects of the ordinary physical world in order to show something beyond it. Theories are often abstractions; so a theory about economics, for instance, may “pull back” to take a broad view that somehow explains all of economics (but maybe doesn’t end up explaining any of it very successfully).
