Photography and its total abstraction are the focus of the current exhibition at the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art at Lewis & Clark.

The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photography showcases the work of 20 international photographers who use a host of approaches to explore aspects of the photographic experience.

“The works of more than a dozen international photographers who make abstract images have been gathered and, collectively, they impress, challenge and seduce,” The Oregonian’s D.K. Row recently reported. “Like abstraction in painting or sculpture, the photos in ‘The Edge of Vision’ deepen our knowledge of photography and dare us to transcend familiar and conventional notions of the art form’s possibilities.”

For more thoughts on the exhibit, visit The Oregonian or Oregon ArtsWatch. The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photographyruns through March 18; the Hoffman Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
