About the Exhibition:
A wide variety of artistic invention greets audiences attending Figuratively Speaking.

A breadth of emotion from its highest peak to deepest realm is explored here and these works will titillate art lovers as they intermingle with this talented grouping.
Featured Artists: Juan A. Lleras, Aurora Mazzoldi, Georgi Minchev, Fanzia Murphey, Janet Saryadegar
Five Degrees of Abstraction
It is in the style of abstraction that the artist is truly free to imagine and inspire. Leaving behind all but impressions of natural forms, the abstract artist's inspiration is fueled by the unlimited possibilities of expression and to directly represent pure emotion or ideation. These bold, colorful paintings refresh the spirit while delighting the mind.
Featured Artists: Kate Cooley, Magda Hogh, Arnold Livingstone, Slobodan Miljevic, Christel Sobke
In Reverence of Reverie
The energy and elegance of the works brought together to form In Reverence of Reverie display how artists' creative life is enriched by idle, contemplative times. From these fleeting moments of relaxation pour out timeless mysteries of existence and rejoice in the beauty of nature. This vibrant collection of painting and collage are highly personal and magnificent to behold.
Featured Artists: Aryn Chapman, Nihal Kececi, Adriana Talhouk, Jaqueline van der Plaat
The Portal to Dreams
For art lovers who are seeking unbridled visionary painting, they need search no longer. The Portal to Dreams collects three contemporary artists whose visionary works defy easy definition as they craft personal revelations with a powerful, expressive force. This phenomenal selection of paintings confronts the viewer with poetic visual puzzles and graceful statements about the human subconscious.
Featured Artists: Julia Fernandez, Javier García Paniagua, Hagop Hagopian, Conor Walton
By exploring such undiscovered vantage points and often-overlooked inspirations, this collection of artists was selected because they present the world to viewers with an unusual candor. Whether with grit or finesse, the paintings grouped together in Unbound Perspectives display a timeless artistic past time: to unseat the audience from their comfortable and mundane perceptions of reality.
