Bianco: An Exhibition of Art Celebrating White
Jan. 4, 2023 - Jan. 26, 2020
Emerge Gallery is pleased to present Bianco: An Exhibition of Art Celebrating White from January 4-26, 2020. An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, January 4 from 5-8 PM and a closing reception on Sunday, January 26 from 3-5 PM. Artwork in the exhibition will be available to view and purchase through Emerge Gallery’s Artsy shop at www.artsy.net/emerge-gallery-ny
White is composed of an equal combination of all of the colors in the spectrum and it is typically associated with innocence and purity, a new beginning, goodness, spirituality, softness and protection. The color has been used culturally over the years to usher in a new marriage or, in some cultures, to say goodbye to a loved one. White promotes clarity and peace—exactly what is needed to usher in the new year.
Over fifty pieces of art representing forty-nine artists from the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area are included in this exhibition. The works vary in style and mediums that include collage; drawings; encaustic; fiber; acrylic, oil and watercolor paintings; photography; porcelain; and sculpture. The common thread that connects each work is the pure white of the work or that it contains a white element where the viewers’ eye is immediately drawn.
Participating artists include Loel Barr, Sandra Bertrand, Barbara Bravo, Lesley Bodzy, Mandara Calderon, Paul Chapman, Michael Ciccone, Arabella Colton, Samantha Connors, Anton deFlon, Nancy deFlon, Timothy Ebneth, Jane Ehrlich, Andrea Geller, Steve Gentile, Katherine Gray, Lois Guarino, Sara Harris, Jeffrey Helmuth, Annette Jaret, Kay Kenny, Marjorie Magid, Kate Masters, Holly McCabe, Elizabeth McGiff, Susan Meiklejohn, Wilma Miller, Paul Mindell, Joy Moore, Meredith Morabito, Ann Morris, Grey Ivor Morris, Piet Mura, Susan J Murphy, Will Nixon, Dorothea Osborn, Susan Phillips, Tracy Phillips, Rick Reiser, Philip Rotter, Susan Sabino, Ken Tannenbaum, Enne Tesse, Jerry Teters, Michelle Tommasi, jd weiss, Angela White, Kathy Pure Wright, and Mimi Young. Bianco is curated by Emerge Gallery director Robert Langdon.
The gallery window will feature work by NJ artist Robert Greco whose process is guided by movement, mood and music. “My work is very textural, involving many layers, colors and materials,” he explains. “But in the end, I always deconstruct back to the basics.” The featured work is inspired by and created for the Bianco exhibition. Greco is represented exclusively by Emerge Gallery on artsy.net, where you can find a wide selection of his work available for purchase.
