Nature Abstracted Opening Reception
The Wildling Museum in Solvang is collaborating with the Santa Barbara based Abstract Art Collective to produce Nature Abstracted. This show features work from the Abstract Art Collective (AAC), a Santa Barbara community-based group of artists. Abstract art challenges the artist and audience to mine the depths of emotion and intellect—to journey far from real world imagery and into the imagination. In this exhibit you will see the artists’ response to various aspects of nature experiences—responses they’ve chosen to share.
The Wildling’s Executive Director Stacey Otte-Demangate and Westmont College’s Nathan Huff juried the submissions from the members of the Abstract Art Collective for this exhibit. Awards will include 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, Juror’s Choice and People’s Choice. Over 25 artworks will be for sale, with 30% of the proceeds supporting the museum. Nature Abstracted will be on display in the Barbara Goodall Education Center from October 3rd through February 4th, 2019. The opening reception will be on October 20th from 3-5pm at the Wildling Museum. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 805.686.8315.
