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 exhibition] presents a stark contrast to the figural, landscape, and otherwise representational works of other photographers who rely on the more documentary aspects of the camera,” Oregon ArtsWatch recently reported. “Instead, these artists set their focus on a more formal depiction of the very limits of what the medium has to offer.”

Visit Oregon ArtsWatch to learn more about the exhibition they call “a special treat” and “a well-rounded show.” The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photography runs through March 18; the Hoffman Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
