YVArts Art Panel MAR 10 | Absolutely Abstract Exhibition

By  | 

YUCCA VALLEY, CA — YVArts will present a special art panel discussion featuring six of the acclaimed artists in the exhibition along with Associate Curator of the Palm Springs Art Museum, Mara Gladstone.  Gladstone has organized exhibitions in a wide range of media and subjects, and will lead the panel in speaking about abstraction in art.  The artists participating on the panel will be W.C. Richardson from Washington, D.C., Emily Elisa Halpern from Los Angeles, and Blake Baxter, David Mackenzie, Kat Green, and Michael McCall, all from the Greater Joshua Tree area.

The exhibition is a survey of modernists traditions juxtaposed alongside postmodernist abstract efforts of the contemporary artist. The artists on the panel will touch upon the artists’ response to contemporary life—why artists today continue to work in the abstract, explaining their individual interpretations, new materials, new technology, and their endless pursuit of the ‘now’. A coffee and teas bar will open beforehand for a social hour.

General Admission tickets are only $15. Free admission for Arts Center Founding Members and free or discounted tickets for sustaining members depending on membership level.
