Abstracted: Lost in Thought


Abstracted: Lost in Thought at The Art Store


The Art Store will open Abstracted: Lost in Thought on Saturday, May 9th with a reception from 6 to 7:30PM. This exhibition consists of imagery using a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition and will feature West Virginia University’s Director of The School of Art and Design in the College of Creative Arts, Alison Helm, as a speaker.
