SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Residents can "consider the unreal" at the 11th annual abstract, surreal and non-objective art exhibit the SHAPE, Shippensburg Arts Programming and Education, Gallery. The showcase features several local, new and veteran artists.
"People are interested in understanding the artist's perspective," said Rebecca Myers, SHAPE Gallery Board of Directors and featured artist.
When guests explore the annual exhibit, they can expect lots of bold color and unique textures. The exhibit displays a variety of watercolors, oils, acrylic and even sculptures.
"In my case, my inspiration was a series of eight paintings called horizon. So they are abstract landscapes," said Myers.
Gallery members say it's an opportunity for the community to see how local artists interpret reality and their every day surroundings.
"Well, I think it's important to see how artists interpret their surroundings and exhibit their reality," said Myers. "And each one of these artists has such a unique style that it makes a very powerful show."
The exhibit is free to the public and runs until September 27th.
