NYIT Presents Urbanessence: Art Exhibition at Gallery 61 September 9 – October 7, 2010
Opening Reception, Thursday, September 16, 5-7 p.m.
New York, N.Y. (Sept. 1, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) presents Urbanessence, a group exhibition of NYIT faculty, staff and artists from New York and the rural Northeast. The show comprises images of Manhattan, Europe, and the Maine coast. As the academic year begins, these images should soften the blow of returning to work and recall the lingering warmth of summer.
Watercolors, paintings, and collages depict buildings, water towers, the New York City Highline and rural scenes. Some artists were attracted to various modes of transportation - an urban traffic pattern, lonely country roads or the lively interaction in subways.
The exhibition artists are:
Christopher Baker, Karen Chandler, Susan Cohen, John di Domenico, Victor Deupi, Anina Porter Fuller, Francis Hamabe, Philomena Marano, Charles Matz, Frank Meuschke, Lucille Nurske, Joan Reutershan, Michael Rich, Margaret Straus and Marilyn Turtz.
Gallery 61 is open Monday – Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is located at 16 West 61st Street, 11th floor. For more information, please contact Jennifer Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
