Reception for the artists

Centering Abstraction features the work of contemporary artists Lael Burns, Sophia Ceballos, Gwen Meharg and Adam Palmer. The artists work in a variety of media, but drawing is at the core of their practice. Layering of media is also utilized in many of the artworks. The centering of the exhibition title refers to “the source of an influence, action, force” or “a point, pivot, axis, around which anything rotates or revolves.” In medicine, center refers to “A group of neurons in the central nervous system that control a particular function.” In the context of this exhibition, the artists have used abstraction as a centering device with which they have given voice to their varied artistic expressions.

Gallery 414 is located at 414 Templeton Street, Fort Worth, TX and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 pm, and weekdays by appointment.
