Carnaghi Arts Building – Phyllis Straus Gallery
August 27 – September 3, 2015
Event though summer has come to an end, there is still time to soak up a little sunshine before the leave begin to turn. The works featured commemorate those who have freed themselves of any inhibitions and choose to work in the cool, cool studio instead of relaxing in the blazing heat of summer. While some of us oiled-up sunbathers hung by the sea with a pina colada in the hand, these artists were knee-deep in fluorescent lighting and swam through piles of work to be made. This was not only intensive labor, but perhaps also their own way of relaxation; they were able to channel their energy into work that would have been much harder to produce when school was in full swing.
