“What is abstraction? Perhaps we all think we know what it is, we know we can define it or we know it when we see it. This exhibition is designed to pose as many questions as it answers. It will provide the viewer examples of works of art in which the artists have pondered or wrestled with the idea of abstraction.” -Mark Ormond, Curator
