Abstracted Abstraction is a regional juried exhibition examining contemporary abstract art. Modern abstract art speaks to the contemporary spirit. The shapes and forms of abstract art vary from artist to artist, who each share their unique inner vision.
The St. Louis Artists Guild seeks artists residing in the states of Missouri or Illinois working in any medium whose work is abstracted, nonrepresentational, or that seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures. Artwork also dealing with abstraction is welcome to give a broad view of contemporary abstract art.
