Crosstown Arts, 422 N. Cleveland, Memphis, TN 38104

Crosstown Arts is pleased to present "Between the Eyes," a group show about contemporary abstract painting and how we see it.

Just as the relationships of pitch and duration can express emotion in music, the formal relationships of hue, value, shape, and placement can collect to create meaning in abstract painting. Featuring the work of six painters exploring distinct modes of abstraction, the exhibition examines the way each artist uses deliberate choices to engage us in the experience of looking. Formal cues such as gesture, color and the use of found objects prompt us to recognize patterns and attribute meaning to certain behaviors. Physicality contends with the pictorial as we both decipher and project meaning into the space of abstract forms.

Featuring work by New York-based artists Marina Adams, Rob de Oude, and Joe Fyfe; LA-based artist Iva Gueorguieva; Philadelphia-based artist Rubens Ghenov; and Laurel Sucsy of Memphis.

The gallery talk on April 21 will include Memphis artists Hamlett Dobbins, Melissa Dunn, and Laurel Sucsy.
