Strictly Abstract.  An ONLINE exhibition

O'Hanlon Center is looking for fresh, nonrepresentational work that inspires, evokes and conveys the essence your art. 

Ann O’Hanlon said: “... discover the uniqueness, the singular presence, the vibration, color, shape, texture, temperature, time-space motion, of oneself. IT IS ALL BOUND TO BE THERE”

A quote from the juror Emebet Korn of Desta Gallery: I approach abstract with an exploration mindset and an open mind. I let the work evoke its intended emotion in me. I take into consideration all the visual elements, colors, shapes, lines, textures, spaces, and values and see if these elements have created a sound composition. Also, I observe the skill and techniques such as brushwork, layering, dimensionality, and markings.

Each artist may submit up to 3 individual pieces of artwork for consideration into this juried show. All media welcome except video. YES photography, fiber, sculpture, digital etc. Diptychs and Triptychs are considered 1 piece of work. Diptychs and Triptychs must be submitted as one image.
