Young Artists in Group Exhibit at Nassau County Museum of Art

June 29-October 13, 2013

All the galleries on the second floor of Nassau County Museum of Art will be filled with exciting work by five contemporary artists in AftermodernisM AM, opening June 29 and remaining on view through October 13. Each of the artists— Nina Chanel Abney, Justin Craun, Wendell Gladstone, Erik Parker and Tom Sanford—is showcased in a dedicated gallery. Aged 31 to 44, they represent a movement of young artists involved in the use of very strong color. They share an interest in combining figurative and abstract elements in new and innovative ways. The famed art collector Hubert Neumann called their work “an asymmetric aesthetic for a fractured asymmetric world.”

AftermodernisM AM is organized for the museum’s Contemporary Collector Circle by the CCC’ co-chairs, Elaine Berger and Alison Wolfson. [Read more…]
