Fresh tracks: an abstract dialog

Fresh tracks: an abstract dialog 

March 22 - April 28, 2013

Organized by Kim Cadmus Owens and Michael Francis, fresh tracks is an exhibition that developed out of a conversation between artists regarding abstract painting. The artists in the exhibition engage directly with the substance of painting. They are aware of its history and discourse and forge their own territory within its long trajectory. In their work they unleash the power of seemingly formal investigations of color, line, shape, and space to pose perceptual and conceptual questions. These abstract dialogs allow the viewer to trace familiar materials through new thought processes and lay fresh tracks, encouraging an audience now educated in the “art of the abstract” to discern its contemporary implications.

 

Exhibiting artists include David Aylsworth, Trey Egan, Vincent Falsetta, Nathan Green, Raychael Stine, Marcelyn McNeil, Michelle Mackey, Brian Ryden, and Eli Walker.
