Abstracto: Land of Dreams, featuring painter Leslie Anderson, is an exhibit full of rich color, texture, and dreamy imagery. Abstract landscapes and figures lead the viewer on an imaginative journey. This exhibit allows the viewer to have a moment of freedom to assign their own meaning to the work, whilst being moved by unique compositions and expressive splashes of color. This call to artists is open to all mediums, with an effort to complement Leslie Anderson’s work. While the exhibit is not limited to abstract artwork and subtle landscapes, that will be the primary focus. Artists who focus on natural color pallets, gestural drawing techniques, pen/ ink, charcoal, ceramics, and glasswork are of particular interest to the jury and curator. Born and raised in Guatemala City, Central America, Leslie Anderson’s first job was as an elementary school teacher. Moving to Florida in the mid ‘80s to continue her education, she received a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and a Master’s in Art Education and Art Therapy at Florida State University. Combining her passion for teaching and art, Anderson worked for the public school system as an art teacher for over 29 years; she retired in September 2020. Her experience in interior design, art education and the day-to-day work in being a full time art teacher have allowed her to work on various mediums, however, her passion has always been painting. These past years, as her two children left home, she found the needed time and space to pursue her art. Elements of art are stylistic features that are included within an art piece to help the artist communicate. She loves working with color. Color can provoke enormous reactions in people; this only intensifies with the addition of playful and in many cases seductive lines in her work.
