Gallery Statement:

Emerge Gallery is pleased to present Bianco: An Exhibition of Art Celebrating White from January 5-28, 2019. An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, January 5, 2019, from 5-8 PM. Artwork in the exhibition will be available to view and purchase on-line at www.emergegalleryny.com.

White is composed of an equal combination of all of the colors in the spectrum and is typically associated with innocence and purity, a new beginning, goodness, spirituality, softness and protection. The color has been used culturally over the years to usher in a new marriage or, in some cultures, to say goodbye to a loved one who is leaving this life and starting out on a new journey. White promotes clarity and peace—exactly what is needed to usher in the new year.

Over forty pieces of art representing thirty-seven artists from the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area are included in this exhibition. The works vary in style and mediums that include charcoal, digital, ink, lino-cuts, mixed media, monotypes, pastel, photography, and sculpture. The common thread that connects each work is the pure white of the work or that it contains a white element where the viewers’ eye is immediately drawn.

Participating artists include Joan Barker, Loel Barr, Ed Berkise, Danielle Bersch, Diane Christi, Maxine Davidowitz, Shelley Davis, Nancy deFlon, ES DeSanna, Al Desetta, Nina Doyle, Mira Fink, John Folchi, Mary Ann Glass, Hannah Hersko, Patricia Kelly, Linda Lynton Annie-Hannah E. Mancini, Ellen Martin, Meredith Morabito, Ann Morris, Susan Murphy, Julie O’Connor, Nancy O’Hara, Amy Puccio, Elaine Ralston, Chris Revelle, Tad Richards, Arlene Santana, Roberta Sickler, Cecelia Sinclair, Richard P. Spisto, Ken Tannenbaum, Leonardo Vatkin, John Verner, Claudia Waruch, d weiss, and Mimi Young. Bianco is curated by Emerge Gallery director Robert Langdon.

Present Kimono, by artist Claudia Waruch, will be featured in the gallery window throughout January. This life size lino-cut/embossed work of paper \ perfectly represents the theme of the exhibition. Emerge Gallery carries a wide selection of original art, reproduction prints, ceramics and pottery and other items by local artists that make a unique gift for someone special or a treat for yourself.
