What’s Happening at the Art Center?

ABSTRACT THIS!


IN THE THOMAS GALLERY
JULY 19 – SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

Abstract art uses a visual language that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. It is a departure from reality. The subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shape, texture, size, or scale. Let go of reality and discover your abstract side!

Opening Reception:
Friday, July 21  6 – 8pm

Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun   11 am – 5 pm

Pick Up Artwork:
Sunday, September 24    2 – 5 pm

MAKE A DONATION

A little goes a long way. If ten people donate $25, that’s $250 or is it? Actually, it’s lights, power, art materials and glazes, newsletters and postage, school programs and special events…

Just think if ten was really fifteen or twenty people? Together, we donate a little and watch it go a long way, enriching everyone’s experience at the art center.

Your contribution is tax deductible. Thanks for helping us “Make Art A Part Of Your Life.” Stop in to the Art Center and donate.
