In the Abstract Exhibit

Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art

December 21, 2022–July 29, 2023

Color, shape, line, form, and texture are the foundation for the language of visual art. Abstract artists use this language to investigate memory, emotion, and art itself. They move away from the expectations of creating a visual reality in their painting practice. There are few rules for this approach to painting; it exists in many different forms.

Represented here are four talented artists in our region who engage with abstract art: Kendall Burns, Mia Guile, Dathan Kane, and Ken Wright.
