'Symphony of Color: Abstracts in Review' bringing explosion of color to Danville

New exhibit at Village Theatre to feature work from Bay Area art group abstract7

Danville’s Village Theatre Art Gallery will be kicking off the new year with a burst of color via its newest art exhibit, “Symphony of Color: Abstracts in Review.”

"Symphony of Color" will feature the work of South Bay painting group abstract7, whose exploratory and innovative art emphasizes the exploration of color.

Formed in 2011, abstract7 consists of members Yao-pi Hsu, Gloria Huet, Marjorie Law, Sydell Lewis, James Ong, Donna Orme and Terry Tsu. The group has a variety of influences and mediums but overall are united by their cubism and abstract expressionism influences as well as their passion for personal expression through abstract and nonobjective art.

Demonstrating the expanded possibilities of abstract art, media at the exhibit will include watercolor, acrylic, collage, oil, printmaking and photography.

Complimentary refreshments will be provided at an opening reception for the exhibition, scheduled for Jan. 10, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Village Theatre reception area. Musical entertainment will provided by The Jazz Room, a musical group that will serenade art goers while they parooz the exhibit.

Art goers who fall in love with pieces will be happy to hear that all of the work in the exhibit will be available for sale.

More information on abstract7 and the individual artists that comprise the group can be found on their website
