EVERSON MUSEUM OF ART ANNOUNCES LEADING 2015 FALL EXHIBITION
August 27, 2015
Syracuse, NY (August 27, 2015) – The exhibition, Three Graces: Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer will open to the public at the Everson Museum of Art on September 26, 2015 and remain on view through January 3, 2016. Three Graces presents the work of three contemporary, New York City-based artists. A Members’ Opening Night Reception is planned for Friday, September 25, 2015.
The Three Graces were known in ancient mythology as enchanting goddesses who personified the primary attributes of creativity: Beauty, Wonder, and Joy. In a recasting of this mythical triumvirate, the Everson introduces three contemporary artists from New York – Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer – whose spectacular abstract works embody such qualities. More than just a typical exhibition, however, Three Graces is also a revelatory experience, as the artists have created new works inspired by pieces from the museum’s collection, which are also included.
“From Moyer’s biomorphic paintings, to Apfelbaum’s playful textiles, and Feher’s magical installations, Three Graces connects the past and present through beauty, wonder and joy,” said Elizabeth Dunbar, Everson President and CEO.
The exhibition will be hosted in the entire second floor of the Everson Museum, as well as the Rosamond Gifford Sculpture Court and select outdoor spaces, complementing the Everson’s iconic I.M. Pei designed building.
A variety of educational programs related to the exhibition, including an artist talk on October 22 and Family Day on October 24, are listed on the museum’s website, www.everson.org.
Admission to “Three Graces” is included in general museum admission, $5 suggested donation per person.
