Far Out: Movement through Form and Color
On display in Union Station Passageway Art Gallery, September 2018-March 2019
Abstract art utilizes a visual language of shape, color, and line to depict a composition devoid of recognizable things from nature. Far Out: Movement through Form and Color brings together six contemporary artists whose art practice explores the genre of abstraction. Using meticulous technique, carefully selected media, and wild imagination, each artist coaxes the viewer with idiosyncratic visions that reflect and embody the energy of perpetual motion and change at Union Station.
