Black & White Juried Exhibition at BWAC | July 29

BWAC’s third BLACK & WHITE national juried art show opens July 29, 2017.  We are privileged to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain.  In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience.  Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience.  Black and white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opuce of color; black and white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods.

BLACK & WHITE explores this underground of survival and few words

Curated by David Kratz and Scott Avett
Presented with New York Academy of Art

Co-curated by musician and painter Scott Avett, lead singer of the folk-rock band The Avett Brothers, and David Kratz, president of the New York Academy of Art, ABOUT FACE features sculpture, paintings and photographs, and brings celebrated East End artists together with Academy artists to examine the diverse ways human beings are presented in the art of today.  In the era of the ubiquitous “selfie,” this exhibition asks viewers to slow down and consider the story inherent in every human face.
