Abstract art featured in new CIAA show

The Conanicut Island Art Association is beginning a new season with its first exhibit of abstract art.

The "Abstracts in the Fall" show will open at the Jamestown Town Hall Gallery on Thursday, Oct. 2, with a reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Guests are invited to mingle with the arts and enjoy refreshments provided by Trattoria Simpatico.

The association wanted to feature abstract art "to simulate the interest and imagination of the viewers and to challenge artists to produce work that they might not normally consider doing," said Don Miller, CIAA president.

This open, juried show includes work from artists from throughout the state. It features original art, including paintings, graphics and photographs.

The show runs from Thursday, Oct. 2 to Dec. 4 at the Jamestown Town Hall, 93 Narragansett Ave. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The show is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.
