Take three artists who are in the thick of their self-realization phases, put their art together for one grand exhibit, and you'll have a gallery full of abstract beauty that may give a new face to art through the eye of the self.

Robert Hooton-Lovely's contribution to the new exhibit, Twist, is abstract charcoal drawings that were inspired by a walk through the woods. Alan Paine Radebaugh's abstract fragments of memory drawings on oil/canvas will point the exhibit in a slightly different direction and to complete the cycle of self will be Kim Parko with torn paper collages that create overhead views of personal excavation sites. It's always interesting to see how others view themselves and the world around them, but the opportunity to see such personal expressiveness is rare. Now is the perfect chance to witness it firsthand. Twist opens Friday, June 4, with a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. inside A Nob Hill Art Complex. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Runs through June 26.
