Reception set for Mass Abstraction exhibit

A reception in which the public can meet seven artists from Mass Abstraction and discuss their work has been scheduled for 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5, at the Pioneer Building, 100 N. Stone Ave., in downtown Tucson.

Selected by the Tucson Pima Arts Council, the group is exhibiting their abstract paintings through March 30 on the first floor of the Pioneer Building, where TPAC has their offices. The 43 pieces are hung in the main lobby space and in the adjoining TPAC conference room.

The artists of Mass Abstraction collaborate philosophically to explore and expand the art of abstract painting. They feel their collaboration opens them to new vision and deeper practice as it expands their personal visual expressions through shared and supportive critiques of each other's work.
