Cool content on display at Gallery Zeke

“Explosion of Cool Content,” an exhibition of abstract art, will be on display at the Steelville Arts Council’s Gallery Zeke during the month of August.

Abstract art was a trend in painting and sculpture in the 20th century. As an art form, abstract art does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, form, colors, line, and textures.
