Form Light Line: Architecture in Print
June 20- September 13, 2014
Opening Night Reception: Friday, June 20 from 5-8pm
This group show of 19 printmakers spans over 90 years of creative expression, with prints by 20th century American artists John Taylor Arms, Martin Lewis, and Armin Landeck coupled with works by cutting-edge, contemporary printmakers. Artists have long found beauty in the strength, durability, and utility of buildings. Form Light Line: Architecture in Print allows gallery viewers to experience familiar constructions through the artist’s eye- to visually explore how surfaces capture light, how windows both reveal and reflect, and how dimensional spaces can be flattened and abstracted into planes of light and dark. The show will remain on view until September 13, 2014.
Selected Artists: Linda Adato, Patrick J. Anderson, John Taylor Arms, William Behnken, Grace Bentley-Scheck, Joan Drew, Richard Haas, Su-Li Hung, Sidney Hurwitz, Armin Landeck, Martin Levine, Martin Lewis, Frederick Mershimer, Joseph Pennell, John Ross, Emilio Sanchez, Art Werger, Steven Yamin, and Alex Zwarenstein.
