The Village Theatre Art Gallery will showcase contemporary Bay Area abstract painters expressing themselves using the same medium in a new exhibition, "twenty four by twenty four," opening this Friday (Jan. 10).
The artists, part of a group known as Blackburn and Friends, used 24-square-inch canvases to create pieces that span the abstract spectrum.
"The seemingly simple elements of art such as line, shape, color and texture create a powerful array of layering possibilities. As painters we embrace these formal tools in a multitude of application processes always anticipating the next layer," said Tesia Blackburn, founder of Blackburn and Friends.
"This exhibit will explore the importance of the format, presenting all works on the square and by definition all sides of equal length," Blackburn added.
The showing will run through Feb. 22 at the Danville gallery on Front Street. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday (Jan. 10) from 5-8 p.m.
