Broadway Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Engaging the Structural, a group exhibition curated by artist, Julie Karabenick.  This exhibition, which runs from April 5-30, features the work of 13 abstract painters from seven states all of whom have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to geometric abstraction.

"There is a wonderfully wide range of style and sensibility in these paintings, from stripes to grids to variations and combinations of geometric figures that are straight and curved, hard-edged and soft, analytical and expressive, simple and complex. As a psychologist and artist, Karabenick is fascinated by the primal power that geometric figures continueto exert. For Karabenick, who is passionate about geometric form and pattern, one impulse in organizing Engaging the Structural was to show the diversity of contemporary geometric abstraction and to marvel at the continued vitality of this historic tradition. Artists, Karabenick proves, are still drawn to the richness of its syntax, a syntax that seems inexhaustible."

– from the accompanying essay, Geometry Reloaded, by Lilly Wei
