Love: The First of the 7 Virtues

Opening reception: Sat, February 14th, 5 – 7 PM

Exhibition: February 14th- December 6th, 2015

 

It is with great enthusiasm that HVCCA launches a year of exhibitions and education programs exploring the artistic representation of Love: The First of the 7 Virtues and its antithesis, Seven Deadly Sins: Lust (scheduled to open April 19, 2015). Developed as an FWMA (Fairfield Westchester Museum Alliance) collaboration, each museum will explore a different sin and, in some instances, its parallel virtue.

In the HVCCA exhibition, love is depicted in all its wonderful variety, whether heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual, or non-sexual. Love is expressed in artworks in which the adoration of nature and animals is as strong and deep as any human bond. Finally, love is observed as memory, offering, shrine, and celebration.

From Robert Indiana’s iconic sculpture that plays on the power of the word ‘LOVE’, to Keith Edmier’s sculpture of the red rose bouquet Jacqueline Kennedy held the day her husband was assassinated, HVCCA invites the viewer to come to the exhibition and see love in some surprising and inspiring ways.

Artists included in the exhibition are drawn from communities around the globe:

Thordis Adalsteinsdottir, Emil Alzamora, Matthew Barney, Hernan Bas, Marius Bercea, Derek Boshier, Birgit Brenner, Skyler Brickley, Ross Chisholm, Debby Davis, Keith Edmier, Carole Feuerman, Moyna Flannigan, Stefanie Gutheil, Dieter Hacker, Bendix Harms, Ridley Howard, Robert Indiana, Sam Jinks, Sherry Kerlin, Angelika Krinzinger, Keegan Kuvach, Charles LeDray, Marin Majic, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nick Mauss, Shirin Neshat, Jonathan Newman, John Newsom, Joel Otterson, Djordje Ozbolt, Paul Pretzer, Saul Raskin, Nathan Ritterpusch, Kalene Rivers and Dan Weise, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Athi-Patra Ruga, Helen Sadler, Maria Tomasula, and Richard Wathen.
