I haven’t posted about any recent exhibits, one I’m in this summer is a juried show at the Bowery Gallery in NYC. The critic and author Lance Esplund curated 35 artists into the group show. Happy to promote it, the link to the work in the show is here, in alphabetical order. If you’re in the Chelsea neighborhood this thursday, drop by. Sadly, I’m unable to attend.
Additionally, very happy to be swimming regularly again since June, fingers crossed that the masks do their job out of the pool. Stay healthy, everyone!
For Immediate Release
Bowery Gallery 31st Annual National Juried Exhibition
Lance Esplund, Juror
August 2 – 20, 2022
Reception: Thursday, August 4, 5-8 pm
Bowery Gallery is pleased to present its annual national juried exhibition, on view at the gallery in its new 27th Street location from August 2 through August 20, 2022. The juror for the show, which comprises two-dimensional works by 35 artists living and working across the United States, is Lance Esplund, author of “The Art of Looking: How to Read Modern and Contemporary Art” (Basic Books). Mr. Esplund is currently an art critic for The Wall Street Journal. He was the U.S. art critic for Bloomberg News; chief art critic for the New York Sun; and the New York correspondent and an editorial board member at Modern Painters. Mr. Esplund has taught at Parsons, Rider University, and Queens College. He has served on a Pulitzer prize committee and been a guest critic at the New York Studio School. Mr. Esplund’s writing on art has appeared in numerous publications, including Air Mail, Art in America, The Atlantic, Harper’s, The New Republic, and Threepenny Review, among others
Gallerygoers will encounter artists showing for the first time in New York, as well as artists in mid-career. The thirty-five artists chosen by Mr. Esplund live in all parts of the US, and they work in oils, watercolor, gouache, pastel, and mixed media. The eclectic mix of styles—abstract and figurative—reflects the approach that has characterized the gallery in its more than fifty years in New York. Bowery exhibitions have been discussed in articles and reviews in publications including The New York Times, The New Yorker, The New Republic, The New Criterion, artcritical.com, Art in America, and Arts.
The exhibition continues through August 20.
