When copper statues of a gold lion and silver unicorn were installed above Boston's Old State House in 1901, the majestic creatures weren’t the only objects left for posterity.

Reverberations: Contemporary Abstractions on view at Able Fine Art NY Gallery in Seoul presents the work of three accomplished international artists. Adel Gorgy, Miyako Aoki and Marsha Solomon are masters of abstraction, yet each possesses a unique vision and voice. When seen together, it is clear that the voices speak to one another.
