We are proud to offer this select group of extraordinary art works from our current exhibition at The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) in Peekskill, New York.
These exceptional works are sourced from HVCCA’s first ever juried exhibition, “WORD: Word in Art / Art in Word,” an exploration of the diverse use of written text through different media. While also featuring iconic works by celebrated artists like Anne Hamilton and Oscar Murillo, “WORD” also presents uncharted talents within the Hudson Valley Region. Out of 140 applications, our jury worked painstakingly to identify those artists whose works showed not only immense intellectual and creative rigor, but also the potential to grow beyond their current success. Several of these artists’ works will be offered at auction for the first time, making this a unique opportunity to own exceptional work created by promising artists at the start of their careers.
The auction will run from July 20, 2016 to December 17, 2016. Click here to get to the online auction!
Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg’s celebrated steel installations enlarge the sentimental and iconic until their meaning is both overwhelming and revelatory. Mounted on steel, Peter Ruprecht’s photograph of the 2015 Dream sculpture captures the immensity of the original work with a dreamy fish-eye effect, while the lighting, both soft and stark, emphasizes the transitory nature of the Burning Man festival, where Kimpton’s work is created and then destroyed.
Barry Mason’s painting Ancestral Calling, 2005, brings disparate canvases together, creating a compositional unity while emphasizing the sharp angles and distinct shapes. Letters are layered in broad strokes of oil paint, almost indistinguishable at first glance. Ricocheting between chaos and harmony, Mason’s work is a breathtaking interpretation and tribute to the creation of a personal African American identity.
Don’t miss your opportunity to bid on these and more incredible artworks!
