Sometimes the word abstract brings to mind a canvas full of squiggles, spaces, and colors with no recognizable subject. But often artists begin with a subject in mind then abstract or simplify it to get to the essence of what they want to convey. The painting may not really be about the subject, but about the art of the painting. Artists showing include Ava Young, Tierney Miller, and Nancy Pendleton who work in pure abstracts. Artists who present recognizable subjects in an abstracted way will include Brenda Bredvik, Jacqueline Ellens, and Melinda Hall. Ron Russon presents traditional western subjects in an abstracted way. Many artists work in both pure abstract and recognizable abstracted subject matter; such as Ryan Hale and Debora Stewart. Show will hang from May 7th to May 30th, with an opening reception on May 7th from 7:00 to 9:00.
