O’Hanlon Center for the Arts invites artists to show us their abstract figurative work for our July exhibition. This work should be a dialogue between abstraction and representation, an image oscillating between a recognizable subject and a purely abstract arrangement. We encourage works that address the human figure and communicate the essence, mood and personality though abstraction. This could be a portrait or scene that is descriptive by color, shape and line without the need for realistic detail. 3D or sculptural works are welcome. 

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged. O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

MEDIA: All Media

  • Open to all artists age 16 and over.
  • Submission limit: 3 works per artist.
  • Please do not submit works previously displayed in the O’Hanlon Gallery.

ART PREPARATION

ABOUT THE JURORS: Donna Seager & Suzanne Gray

A native of New Orleans, Donna Seager began in the art business in 1978. She was the director of Marlborough Gallery in Boston before moving to California in 1989. She continued to work in galleries in the bay area until 2005 when she opened her own gallery. Seager has distinguished herself for her discerning eye and commitment to the arts in her community. She has given lectures on the art of the book at international fairs in Miami and San Francisco. In six years, the gallery became a destination for artists and collectors all over the bay area.

Suzanne Gray, a resident of Mill Valley grew up in upstate New York and studied journalism and art history at Syracuse University and San Jose State. Her lifelong interest and background in art and art history landed her a position at Donna Seager Gallery where she became an integral part of the business and ultimately a valued partner. Gray’s skills extend themselves to professional art consultant services and she has overseen both commercial and residential art programs. Her knowledge of the art market, sophisticated eye and understanding of art placement have gained her the trust and respect of her clients.
