With the dawning of the industrial revolution at the end of the 19th century, artists felt a desire to express some of the massive societal changes in science, philosophy and technology. Steering away from art that represented form and figure, artists felt a pull to create new art that expressed the philosophies of the modern age as well as concepts and emotions.
With our own society’s massive changes due to advances in technology, many of today’s artists are discovering that abstract art - whether partial or total - is an expressive frontier.
The show will run for the month of October. Participating artists are Maebel Astarloa-Haley, Melody Cleary, Marcia Petty, and Katherine van Schoonhoven.
Artists' reception Sunday, October 14th from 12:30-2pm.
