Viewpoints has been known as a gallery showing mostly traditional work but this month we challenged ourselves to try something different and tackle an abstract. Everyone had fun with the project and there was a lot of discussion about what constitutes an abstract painting. Here are a couple of the paintings on display.

Carol Mead began with an images she remembered from the aquarium which she thought made an interesting abstract design.

Barbara con Haunalter likes to paint seascapes in muted colors. Here she has simplified her shapes, used a lot of texture and a vivid palette.

Come see what the rest of the artists came up with. This show will be hanging until the end of the month.
