WEST ORANGE, NJ — “iPadology/Abstract Expressions,” an exhibit curated by local artist Mansa Mussa that explores how the combination of the iPad, apps and printers can be used to create abstract images that extend the vitality and reality of photography, will be held at the West Orange Arts Council Art Center, located at 551 Valley Road in West Orange, from now until Saturday, Aug. 27.

An opening reception to be held on Wednesday, July 12, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

“I’ve always struggled with the idea of being an abstract artist, and when I started using the iPad three years ago I found a process to realize the potential of creating abstract images,” said Mussa.
