EVERSON ANNOUNCES ARTIST GALLERY WALK
September 30, 2015
SYRACUSE, NY (September 30, 2015) – Everson Museum of Art is pleased to announce an Artist Gallery Walk on October 22 at 6:30 p.m. featuring the artists of new exhibition “Three Graces: Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer.”
In this guided gallery walk artists will discuss their contemporary art practices, materials, and processes while exploring the inspiration of incorporating the Everson’s collection into their installation.
Curator of Education Kimberly Griffiths said, “This Gallery Walk is the perfect opportunity to delve into ‘Three Graces’ and join in lively conversation with the artists.”
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 presents 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 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 is hosted on the entire second floor of the Everson Museum, as well as the Rosamond Gifford Sculpture Court and select outdoor spaces. “Three Graces” will remain on view through January 3, 2016.
This event is free and open to the public. To learn more visit www.everson.org/events
