Brandt-Roberts Galleries will present a juried invitational of abstract works, titled Praxis (Process) this October. A select group of noteworthy artists have been invited from across the country, including two from Columbus, and one from France. Each of these artists are in different stages of their careers and engage a variety of mediums in their pursuit of abstract expression. As the title suggests, Praxis (Process) emphasizes the process of making art, often through a plethora of techniques that include dripping, dabbing, smearing, and even creating new tools to apply paint to a surface. The artist's deliberate approaches often interact with random, chance occurrences. Through the use elements such as scale, color, texture, balance, and line, these works transcend visual perceptions and become purely the result of the artist's choices. By highlighting the many concepts this group of artists employ, both in materials and methodology, we hope to show the integral role that the physical making of art plays in the entirety of the creative process. Featured artists include Columbus College of Art and Design graduate Zach Coneybeer, School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduate Katie Kirk, Chicago-based artist Keiko Nemeth, New York-based artist James Austin Murray, and Lao-French artist Marijah Bac Cam. Juried by Columbus Museum of Art Contemporary Curator Tyler Cann, internationally-exhibited contemporary artist Terry Rodgers, and Victoria's Secret Vice President of Sales Patrick Sanderson.
