September 11 - Past, Present, Future.
On exhibit from September 12 to October 10
The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present "September 11 - Past, Present, Future," curated by Andrea Arroyo and featuring sixteen New York-based artists.
In commemoration of the upcoming 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, visual artist Andrea Arroyo invited New York artists from diverse backgrounds to participate in this exhibition by creating new work or showing existing work about the subject.
The sixteen participating artists address this critical event in world history in a variety of creative ways, and in styles that range from figurative to abstract. Works deal directly with the incident, or with associated concepts, such as loss, personal memories, the WTC, terrorism, war, and other concepts that relate to the September 11 attacks and its aftermath. The exhibit features works in drawing, painting, print, collage, photography, installation, mixed media and quilt.
Examples of the works in the exhibit include: Miriam Romais' photographs of the World Trade Center taken in the 1990's; cartoonist Felipe Galindo's series of humorous works about the Twin Towers (1983-2011;) David Gonzalez' photographs of street murals from the Bronx; Sylvia Hernandez' traditional memory quilt featuring photographs of survivors and magazine covers from 2001; and Susan Hoeltzel's painting of the plane that used the Hudson River to find it's way to lower Manhattan.
Participating artists: Patricia Cazorla, Beatrice Coron, Denise Deleray, Laurence Fayard, Felipe Galindo, Janet Goldner, David Gonzalez, Sylvia Hernandez, Susan Hoeltzel, Randy Jones, Thomas Kerr, Miriam Romais, Nancy Saleme, Nina Talbot, Yasuyo Tanaka.
