Abstracts: A Judged Exhibition

MAA is pleased to present the fifth of our 2020 members-only online exhibitions, Abstracts. 

Abstract art uses visual language of shape, form, color, and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.

Our judge was Eric Millikin, an innovative conceptual artist. His work is interactive, using a wide range of user tools. His artwork explores social and political topics, and uses strategies to reach broad audiences in ways that are intellectual and stimulating. 

All of the artwork in this show is available for purchase, with prices shown (not including 6% Maryland sales tax). If you are interested in making a purchase, please email
