House of Shadows Presents

Abstract Instincts

Saturday, December 18, 2021 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

In a world apart from the physical references we see every day, abstract art relies on an innate sense that guides the artist in the use of colors, shapes, lines, and forms to create a work of art that can only be translated through an experience with it. It can provoke familiar, primal feelings within us or an entirely new experience, allowing us to lose ourselves in a new universe created completely by the hand of the artist. Our exhibition, Abstract Instincts, is a collection of windows into those fantastic worlds, dreams, and visions.
