Founded in 1982, the New York Academy of Art is a legendary institution that continually produces top-tier artists. Much of this lasting legacy can be attributed to its award-winning faculty as well as the renowned success of its alumni.
Entering into its fifth installment, the NYAA has mounted a stellar group exhibition of alumni and faculty to be hosted at The Vendue — Charleston, South Carolina’s Art Hotel. On view from May 26 through September, the exhibition is a collaboration between New York-based curator and art adviser Rick Davidman and gallery owners Robert and Megan Lange. The finalists were narrowed down to 22 artists, whose works in various media will be included in the exhibition.

Among others, participants of this year’s exhibition include Melissa Anderson, Jean-Pierre Arboleda, Jaclyn Brown, Michelle Doll, Peter Drake, and Heidi Elbers. A full spectrum of styles is represented, from exquisite photorealistic paintings to expressive and abstracted representational works. Visitors can expect to see lovely landscapes, figurative subjects, Animalia sculpture, and portraiture.
