On Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th, an eclectic group of artists will present "Mostly Abstract," a pop-up show at Ashawagh Hall.

Featured artist Casey Chalem Anderson described works from the exhibit as "a visceral and emotional response to the world, not a literal one." Finding inspiration in Ashawagh Hall's rich history of abstract expressionist exhibitions, artists created paintings and sculptures that are "external expressions of an intuitive internal process." Pieces explore an array of mixed media, using everything from traditional oil, acrylic and watercolor paint to clay, wood, metal, photography, collage, graphite, and resin.

"Mostly Abstract" will showcase works by Casey Chalem Anderson, Beth Barry, Barbara Bilotta, Anahi DeCanio, Katherine Hammond, Bo Parsons, Sheila Rotner, Cynthia Sobel, Lieve Thiers, and Mark E. Zimmerman.

A special reception (which is open to the public) will take place on Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will be on view on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-267-6554 or visit ashawagh-hall.org.
