New exhibition offers sampling of abstract art

Featuring the work of eight local artists, a new exhibition at The Launchpad’s R2 Gallery serves as an illustration of different sub-styles of abstract art.

“I hope people will get the impression that abstract art can come in many, many forms,” said curator Dave Durrance, who also has a piece in the show.

The exhibit kicks off with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday and will run through May 1.

The work in the exhibit varies greatly in style and medium. Judy Hancock works in watercolor, Ellen Woods is an abstract expressionist; Nancy Kullgren works in the color field genre; Durrance is inspired by minimalism and constructivism; Amy Butowicz has abstract installations in the show; Mark Brendon Smith uses multiple layers of canvas to break up and abstract images; Shelley Bogaert works
