Corinne Gandy Watson and Jackie Roughton discuss Ted McCormick’s painting.

“It turns something realistic into an abstract,” Watson said of the artwork. “You can see a whole different world up that close.”

Watson entered two older pieces in the show, including a pastural view of two young people in a field of grass and a second, a guitar player in abstract that could resemble, if looked at with a different perspective, a globe.
