"Abstraction/Distraction," a show of work by Leonard Ragouzeos, is featured through November. "Abstraction to me represents a reduction to essence, a balancing act composed of shapes and colors which may have no specific reference but instead relate to some fundamental truth or principle. When I paint this way, I do it as a comfort and distraction from the 'real' world in which we find ourselves that too often lacks balance, truth, and principles."
