Traditionally defined, abstract art refers to imagery that is non-representational and focused on the aesthetics and expressive potential of color, shape, balance, depth, composition and scale.
Such formal aesthetics is the focus of an exhibition through March 24 at the Brentwood Arts Exchange in Brentwood.
Timed to coincide with Women’s History Month, the exhibition brings together two influential women artists.
The exhibition titled “Rivers and Memories” features works by long-time local prominent artists Evangeline Juliette “E.J.” Montgomery and Lilian Thomas Burwell. Visually engaging, the exhibition’s two-dimensional and three-dimensional works play on a careful balance between fluid and static motion that gives the viewer a sense of time and space.
