“Driven to Abstraction” at the Lindsay Dirkx Brown Gallery
March 2 - March 29
The Lindsay Dirkx Brown Gallery has selected us for the third year in a row to be exhibitors. Our show will run all of March and the title is “Driven to Abstraction”.
What defines abstraction? Can an artwork that has some representational imagery be considered abstract? You decide. This show, presented by the Lamorinda Arts Alliance represents a wide range of styles and approaches to abstraction.

“Color is just delicious, it is my world, it starts everything going. I spread it on my palette and I feel my creative juices flowing, it lights my life. As I continue my study and joyful exploration of Abstract Art. I also focus on texture, line, shape and composition. I utilize these elements as they develop their own life in my paintings and leads me to wonderful incredible discoveries.”- Lynn Glenn
