'Firework' by Scott Wallace | Provided

North Charleston painter Scott Wallace will present his new exhibit, Abstraction in Action, at the Park Circle Gallery Jan. 5-30. The exhibit presents Wallace’s series of abstract paintings, which explore unusual color palettes and the textural possibilities of acrylic paint.

Wallace’s latest paintings “flirt with the line between representation and abstraction, modified through the process of drawing,” he said in a press release. The new exhibit also analyzes “the base materiality of acrylic paint,” he added.

Abstraction in Action will be open to the public and free to attend. Gallery capacity is still limited to 10 people at a time, and face masks are required for all patrons.
