Group exhibition of seven critically acclaimed painters committed to abstract painting. Eschewing the depiction of realistic imagery, all have found continual fascination with abstraction as the thread to infinite possibilities. Their paintings tie the formal arrangement of the basic elements of art to a vast array of social, intellectual, emotional and perceptual influences. The results are exquisite individual paintings that are resounding visual experiences. Featuring: Timothy App, Dan Dudrow, Dennis Farber, Carol Miller Frost, Bill Schmidt, Jo Smail, and Michael Weiss. Wednesday - Thursday 12 noon to 4:00 pm Friday 12 noon to 8:00 pm Saturday - Sunday 12 noon to 4:00 pm Monday - Tuesday Closed
