Featured Exhibit

Shifting Perspective: Images of Hope in Troubled Times »

Dates: January 9–March 29, 2019
Featuring Works By: Sue Henry, Susan W. N. Ruach, Mary Rice & Sharon Brown Christopher.

The Abstract Group is a collective of women who seek to explore the unseen and make their discoveries visible through the practice of abstract fine art photography. By focusing on shape, color, pattern, texture, angle, tone and perspective, their offerings invite rather than direct and evoke the emotional engagement of the viewer.
