Abstractly Speaking, abstract art can touch the emotions in a fresh, raw and powerfully direct way.  Art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures. This art competition show is judged by award-winning abstract painter Amy Vidra.
