Valley Arts Center, 155 Bell Street, Chagrin Falls, OH “Open to Interpretation: Abstract Art.” Opening 6-8pm. Art is always open for interpretation: how do we interpret abstract art? Valley art Center invites you to observe how 53 artists responded to this challenge. The exhibits includes 70 works of art in a variety of mediums with work ranging from 2 dimensional paintings and photographs to 3 dimensional textiles and assemblage sculpture. Abstract art explores the relationships of form, color and line to create a composition. This form of art tends to move away from realistic art that represents the world with easily recognizable images. This departure from traditional representation can be slight, partial, or complete.
