Join Ohio Art League members Peggy Mintun and Stephanie Rond August 7 through September 19 this year at the Carnegie Gallery of the Columbus Metropolitan Library for “The Origins of Abstraction,” jurors of esteem Barb Vogel and Elsie Sanchez.

The basis of abstract is the elements of design; color, line, shape, texture, form, and space. But, how are those elements transformed into abstract? From life and from nature. From culture and situations. From your emotions, as a poetic visual expression. There is always a source and a meaning, even if it is to see how the paint hits the canvas, such as with formalism. “Real Life Cable” by Christine Guillot Ryan is one of the 21 works selected for the exhibit.

Opening Reception: Aug 7, 2014, 6-8pm
Carnegie Gallery 96 S. Grant Avenue, Columbus Ohio 43215
