For the past 10 years, the New York Academy of Art has celebrated the hot summer months with a series of outstanding exhibitions that should — among other things — heat up the collector’s checkbook. What’s on the slate for 2016?
The New York Academy of Art will make a splash this summer at the Southampton Arts Center. Opening June 23 and running through July 31, the Academy will mount a highly anticipated exhibition titled “Water|Bodies.”
The group show will present new paintings, drawings, and sculptures from Academy artists alongside works by artists with longstanding ties to New York’s East End. Among the artists included are Ross Bleckner, Patrick Demarchelier, Eric Fischl, Ralph Gibson, April Gornik, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Michael Halsband, Enoc Perez, and David Salle.
As the exhibition title alludes, bodies of water and bodies in water will be the theme. The subject presents artists with near infinite ways to explore both figurative compositions and the luminous effects of water.
