Anthology: A Visual Collection of Work by
March welcomed the opening reception of Anthology: A Visual Collection of Work by Debe and Kevin Abbott at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. The exhibit is a representation of work created by Debe and Kevin over the past several years in rural upstate New York and here in Florida.
The works included are mostly non-representational abstract paintings and sculptures. They vary in size and color palette but share a common organic aesthetic. The paintings while abstractions are mostly landscape-based. The sculptures are welded steel yet evoke an organic sensibility through the artist’s hand.
The Abbott’s have been making and exhibiting art since the 1970s and together since 1981. Anthology is on view until April 30th at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts.
