PAC: Near to You: An Exhibit

January 19, 2018 to March 24, 2018
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Pelham Art Center 155 Fifth Ave, Pelham, NY 10803

Curated by Alexandra Rutsch Brock and Elizabeth Saperstein
January 19 - March 24, 2018
Free Opening Reception: Friday January 19, 6:30-8:00 pm
The gallery ushers in 2018 with a stunning new portrait exhibition, Near To You. On view will be painting and sculpture by six exciting artists committed to the language and texture of paint and painting as well as challenging approaches to portraiture itself. What does it mean to capture the impression or image of a person? What is it that the viewer recognizes in a portrait? The exhibition will be on view January 19 - March 24, with an opening reception on Friday, January 19, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. A catalog will be published to accompany the exhibition.

Near To You features the work of Tim Doud, Jenny Dubnau, Donna Festa, John Mitchell, Heather Morgan, and Julia Schwartz and includes self-portraits and portrait subjects. Two of the artists, Dubnau and Festa, are 2017 Alexander Rutsch Painting Award finalists. The exhibition title is inspired by Nina Simone‚Äôs haunting version of the Adler-Ross show tune of the same name, and makes us wonder if we are seeing the so-called real person or a trace element, fleeting in time.
