The first edition of “Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques” was released a softcover in 2005, published by Watson-Guptill. Thanks to Candace Raney and Julia Moore for their editorial assistance.
The second edition of “Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques” out in 2016, is an exciting exploration of the newer ways to communicate the visual journey through this most engaging topic. Numerous features that are not available in a print version have been incorporated. Of particular note is the ability to see an artwork freed from the surrounding text. An artwork image will pop up to full screen when clicked on. The reader also has several slideshows that illustrate important points.
Several essays by Vicky Perry on gallery shows may be found here, including Heidi Trepanier, Marti Cormand and Pat Passlof.
