ABSTRACT Apprentices

Though abstraction can feel wild and wide open (and was received with sneers in its debut years), more recently it feels like a rite-of-passage for artists to expand their lexicon. Some become masters, and some simply incorporate new ways of making into their repertoire (pictured, a detail from Untitled by Stephanie Zide, 2018). Bottin, Manning and Zide show together in This is Where We Meet at FSCJ’s Kent Campus Gallery, Riverside.

Opening reception is 6 p.m. Jan. 30.
