NON: Curated Exhibition

by Jessica Stolen

The magic of abstract images is in the ambiguity.  Abstraction conveys meaning and evokes emotion using line, color, form, texture, and composition. These works break barriers of communication and disregard assumptions of traditional artistic techniques. Every viewer is equally qualified to create their own connection to abstract work. 

In NON, curator Will Gonzalez invites artists and viewers to release themselves from expectations and embrace the enigma of abstract art. 


2D works (drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, collage), 3D works (fiber, sculpture, installation), and video.

Artists can submit up to 3 images in jpeg or mp4 (for video). All 2D work must be wired and ready to hang. We prefer exhibiting artwork to be for sale but it’s not required. The Gallery commission is 35%.
