The New York Academy of Art is pleased to announce its annual Summer Exhibition, a juried show at Flowers Gallery featuring new works from the Academy community. Now in its eleventh year, the Summer Exhibition features over 70 works of painting, drawing and sculpture by Academy alumni, faculty and students.
The works were selected from over 500 submissions, by a jury comprised of Matthew Flowers, Managing Director of Flowers Gallery, Andrew Russeth, executive editor of ARTNews, and independent art advisor Joyce Varvatos. The exhibition will be on view from June 20 – July 15, 2017, at 529 West 20th Street, New York, NY
“What began as a process of elimination ended as a selection of works that have a cohesiveness in aesthetics but definitively not a theme,” notes juror Joyce Varvatos. “The level of talent gave the jury plenty to pause about but we are thrilled with the outcome.”
Flowers Gallery is an internationally recognized gallery with three locations in London and New York. The dual programs exhibit a range of media by established and emerging artists. The gallery is an active publisher of prints and multiples, with a dedicated focus on international photography.
Founded in 1982 by artists, scholars and patrons of the arts, including Andy Warhol, the New York Academy of Art is a not-for-profit education and cultural institution, which combines intensive technical training in drawing, painting and sculpture with active critical discourse. Academy students are taught traditional methods and techniques and encouraged to use these skills to make vital contemporary art. Through major exhibitions, a lively speaker series, and an ambitious educational program, the Academy serves as a creative and intellectual center for all artists dedicated to highly skilled, conceptually aware figurative and representational art.
