The Art of Abstraction

Blur the lines of visual reality and obscure the objective in this exhibition, where shapes, lines, and colors lead outside the realm of the representational. The Art of Abstraction invites Michigan artists ages sixteen and older to showcase their expressive artwork in all mediums embodying the theme and spirit of abstract art.
