sponsored by The Art Center Guild

The Art Center opens a two week exhibit of artists working in the vein of abstraction.  The work will include some of The Art Center’s favorite works from the permanent collection as well as from prominent and emerging artists of all ages and backgrounds.  Thinking Through Abstraction ranges from the loose gestural paintings of South Carolina artist Betsy Chaffin to the more formal shapes in sculpture of Aspen artist Molly Peacock.  Other artists in the exhibit are Karol Appel of Amsterdam, Brian Baker of New York/Grand Junction, Jared Davis of Crawford, Taylor Lee Bisbee of Grand Junction, Sandra Hoefner of Palisade, Sara Ransford of Loma, and Andrew Watson of Grand Junction.

In abstraction subject is a bit harder to identify, and can be hybrids or simplification of what might exist in nature or an object. When one walks up to abstraction the work can often times defy a quicker pictorial read; which many people enjoy and others disdain.  This is always good for conversation and challenging one’s beliefs of what is necessary for viewers to be able to connect to a piece of artwork. Non-objective work is also included in this exhibit.  Non-objective art is defined by the artwork not being tethered to subject. One of the most famous artists to abandon any outside reference to nature or object is Jackson Pollock.

“The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating.”  Jackson Pollock.
