Points of View

January 17 – February 21

 

The exhibition, Points of View: 1982, presents forty-eight works of art by twenty-four artists who have achieved, or who are now achieving, recognition for the high quality of their work in painting, drawing and photography. Ten galleries contributed a variety of works selected for a wide range of contemporary interests in tradition and experimental directions.

 

Diversity of expression—energetic, contemplative, illusionistic, fantastic, descriptive, evocative, hermetic, literal, gestural, iconic, provocative, real and surreal elements are all present in these highly personal images. The fifteen paintings, seventeen drawings and sixteen photographs included in this exhibition share a common factor in their creative vitality and independence.

 

The innumerable concerns and perceptions of artists are perhaps more visible in the open opinions of contemporary art today, some of these perceptions may be assessed or re-discovered in this exhibition. The general and the particular configurations can contribute to our awareness of the surge and drift of what is being done now.

 

The aim of the exhibition of these divergent viewpoints is to produce cumulative visual reverberations, which may fertilize the imagination and expand our sensibilities.
