“Abstract Conversations” is a visual dialogue, between 5 local artists from North Beach in San Francisco, which expresses the artists’ interpretations of abstract art through lines, shapes, lights, forms, colors, textures and motions. The exhibit provides viewers a source of inspirations, voice and vision of what embodies the essence and the most fluent form of art - Abstract.
This exhibition will include paintings, photography and videography.
