Mindy Solomon Gallery artists Ali Smith, Gary Petersen, and Ernesto Garcia Sanchez are featured in the exhibition Defining Abstraction, curated by Mark Ormond at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. Defining Abstraction is a group exhibition of over 30 contemporary artists who work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, and printmaking and seek to answer the question, “What is abstraction?” On view in the College’s Selby Gallery space from July 10th through August 5th.
“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
