Mobile — "Magnificent Abstractions" was the art exhibit on display in the Mary Elizabeth and Charles Bernard Rodning Gallery of Art on the third floor of the University of South Alabama Marx Library. When Dr. Richard Wood, dean of university libraries, contacted Linda Tenhundfeld about doing an exhibit at USA, he told her to let her imagination run wild. Linda immediately thought of Bill Kramer and Ron Lindquist, fellow members of Cathedral Square Gallery, because of their particular skills and passions for the abstract. The resulting large, vibrant, colorful pieces were sure to please visitors to the gallery. These grand works of art would not only be seen with your eyes but also felt with your heart.
"Brilliant detachment," "a splendid trance" – that was what the artists believe viewers may experience in these magnificent abstract works. Abstract art uses shapes, forms, colors, textures, and lines to create imagery that was open to the interpretation of the viewer. It was a creative style of expression, which produces distinctive artwork that may be seen or perceived differently by each individual.
This unique, eye-catching exhibit was free to the public and displayed through Wednesday, April 30, 2014. Many of these beautiful paintings were also offered for sale. Prices were listed on the artwork and contact information for the artists was available at the exhibit.
