THE VERY VERY RARE AFFORDABLE ART FAIR
April 25- 28, 2019
A curated collection of 50+ international, local, and under-represented artists for one weekend only.
ART OF PERCEPTION
March 19 - May 26, 2013
Working in a style she calls “Perceptionist Art,” Sabrina Abbott creates bold, vibrant canvases focusing on everyday objects that range from flowers to trash. The young artist developed her unique style while studying in Italy at the Accademia di Belle Arti, and continued honing her skills while working as an intern at the Uffizi museum in Florence and at the Louvre in Paris. The exhibit is the first museum retrospective of Abbott’s work and continues through May 26, 2013, only at The California Museum.
DECEMBER 3-11, 2019
The International Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art, now in its Eighth Edition, one again acts as a significant meeting point between cultures and artistic expressions of many world nations, reaffirming the city of Florence, in wake of its traditional vocation of peace, a platform for understanding and dialogue among people. - Stefano Francolini
L'ART DE LA PERCEPTION
MAY 27-30, 2010
Sabrina leads her creative process through many passages. For each work she chooses and defines the scope of her painting and in it she connotes a personal definition-of philosophical taste- that she calls 'perceptionism.' Her perception and control over her ideas stem from recognition of the formal qualities of objects and aspects of nature from which she claims lost beauty and retraces it precisely with a clear and purifying eye.

OCTOBER 21-23, 2011 LONDON, ENGLAND
Parallax AF grew out of an international exhibition called "Parallax" that was conceived and curated by the art historian Dr. Chris Barlow.
Parallax AF is different from other artists fairs in that it is like a specialized exhibition. It is a serious platform for international and national artists to present their work to national and international dealers, art industry people, collectors, critics, and buyers.
AUGUST 7-16, 2009 YREKA, CALIFORNIA
Life of Lucas? How about Story of Sabrina? Former Yreka High graduate who drew the daily cartoon Life of Lucas for the Siskiyou Daily New for four years, has developed a painting style she calls Perceptionism. A the same time, she has been seeing a lot of the world since she first left town. And she's worked in some pretty impressive places while doing so. Abbotts style will be on display when her show "International Perceptions" opens this Friday, August 7 at 7 pm with an artist reception at Nolan Printing, 214. S Broadway

MAY 27, 2009 MEUDON, FRANCE
A public view in a private setting, Sabrina Abbott is offering a first glimpse of some of her latest work created while living and painting on a barge on the Seine and in Meudon. See how France has impacted and inspired the young Californian artist.
SEGNI DI VIA MATTONAIA
NOVEMBER 29-30, 2009 FLORENCE, ITALY
A Centrifugal energy whips the superficial objects depicted in her work which are sealed in algid, chromatic color. Sabrina is a singular personality who digs beyond what is seen in a challenge to recover some poetic quality either lost or overlooked. The colors are at the center of her expression; it excites the life force of the segments with reality that re-adapts docilely with the power of secure technique. - Dr. Giovanna Giusti
MAY 16 - JUNE 16, 2008 FLORENCE, ITALY
NOVEMBER 28 - DECEMBER 18, 2008 PRATO, ITALY
