Artist Recpetion: Local Women in Abstraction

03/15/2018 to 03/15/2018

Publick Playhouse, 5445 Landover Rd, Cheverly, MD 20784

In recent years, many art institutions have sought to give recognition to women artists who historically have not been represented in important collections, exhibitions, or books. This exhibition seeks to build on this momentum by celebrating local female artists investigating various mediums and modes of abstract expression. Line, shape, color, texture, space and form are the universal tools that these artists employ to communicate the ethereal, the mundane and the simply sublime.
