An Abstract World, opening Aug. 5 in the main hall of the EXPO Arts Center as a part of the First Friday Art Walk, covers a wide range of contemporary and traditional abstract art, including everything from urban steam punk sculptures by artist Peter Ramirez to modern plexiglass and acrylic works by Joseph Salazar. The exhibit will continue through the end of the month.
Noted abstract artist Kellie Walker will be showing four new art pieces as a part of her Dreams series. Kellie’s work reflects images taken from dreams. Each of the three paintings from acrylic artist Nairobi Tony’s Comb Painting series is a mixture of pure primary color paints manipulated by combs to resemble the reflections on the top of a pond filled with koi. Marina Del Ray artist George Marlowe works in pen, ink and acrylics to create lacy renditions reminiscent of modern stained glass. His series Patterns consists of lacy black lines leading to and surrounding bright patches of color.
The artist reception will be held on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 6-9pm. There will be a no-host donation bar, snacks and a band playing. Most of the artists will also be available to talk about their art.
