Studio Montclair Presents ‘Absolute Abstraction’ – October 29-November 30

Fausto Sevila: Alfreda, Acrylic on Raw Canvas

Montclair, NJ – Studio Montclair presents “Absolute Abstraction” on exhibit from October 29 through November 30 at Studio Montclair Gallery, 127 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ. An opening reception will take place on Sunday, October 31 from 2 to 4:30pm.

The exhibit, featuring the artwork of 49 artists, embraces non-representational art as a way for artists to express themselves—and viewers to respond–without the kind of public “agenda” that has been jockeying for position in nearly every aspect of our lives in recent years.


Mary Dajnak: Repeated Measures #4, Woodcut and Drypoint Monoprint

According to Curator Onnie Struther, “We need art that allows our imagination to soar and fly high–we need Absolute Abstraction.”

Viewers will be graced with artwork that allows them to draw their own conclusions. Art that dazzles the eye and emancipates the imagination.

“Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.” – Wassily Kandinsky
