Beyond the general theme of abstraction, the artists were not asked to adhere to any specific theme. The result is a mix of colorful pieces that pop off the canvas and more subtle, ethereal works. Gallery owner and curator Nicole Korbe is drawn to the challenge created by this diversity of styles in designing the layout of the show.

“I am delighted to share work from these artists, some of whom are quite accomplished in their art careers and others who are just starting to get their work out into the world. This aligns well with the mission behind NKollectiv as a place for artists to build relationships with future and current collectors and a community of other artists.”
