You Still Have Until March 29 to Check Out the Abstract Invitational Group Exhibtion at the Spartanburg Art Museum Featuring Clemson University's Valerie Zimany and Daniel Bare

Abstract Invitational
group exhibition
January 14th - March 29th, 2014
The Abstract Invitational exhibition is a collection of abstract paintings and sculptures, which features artists from the piedmont area of North and South Carolina.  This exhibition is travelling to SAM from the Harper Gallery at Presbyterian College. “This exhibit of works by artists working in their personal visual language to express and celebrate thought-provoking self-expressions released into an abstract and removed art form is one to visit many times to view, study, and explore your own interpretations,” said Ann Stoddard, Gallery Director and College Curator of Harper Gallery.
The featured artists’ works in this exhibit use traditional media for their abstract art works in this colorful exhibit, including:
  • surreal ceramic concoctions by Daniel Bare
  • contrasting methodical and deliberately calculating rhythmic geometric paintings by Martyn Bouskila
  • thought- provoking capricious works on paper by Felicia van Bork
  • flirtatious painterly color swirls of Linda Hudgins (pictured above)
  • whimsical glassworks by renowned glass artist Robert Levin (pictured below)
  • importantly defined and brilliantly colored shaped canvases of Dale McEntyre
  • dynamic stormy paintings by Christopher Rico
  • Valerie Zimany’s curious clay sculptures.
Abstract Invitational brings a wide range of self-expression through the broad art movement of the abstract genre.  Abstract art, or “non-objective art,” uses a visual language of form, shape, color, line, brush stroke, and other applications to create an independent expression possibly inspired by visual references or an internal monologue. Abstract works can also be simply described as spontaneous and emotional expressions, free of any associations with meaning but purely an expression of the visual language through a given medium or media.
