October WADA Member Artist Show
The Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA) proudly announces an Artist Member Show with the theme of "Exceptional Abstractions"
Location: The Burka Member Lounge at the ArtsXchange Campus on the Deuces Corridor
Second Saturday October 9, 2021
Call for Entries: The Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA) proudly announces an Artists Member Art show with the theme "Exceptional Abstractions". Abstraction is:
The quality of dealing with ideas rather than events.
The process of considering something independently of its associations, attributes, or concrete accompaniments.
Strictly speaking, the word abstract means to separate or withdraw something from something else.
The main purpose of abstraction in art is not to tell a story, but to encourage involvement and imagination.
Selected artworks fitting this theme submitted by WADA members, will be on exhibit for the month of October in the Burka Member Lounge at the ArtsXchange on the Deuces Corridor located in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. The ArtsXchange campus is one of the most widely visited spots during Second Saturday Artwalk. Fill out the entry form:
