100 ways of looking at the world opens at the LeRoy Neiman Art Center in Harlem on November 30th, extending through the end of January, 2013. The exhibition – featuring 100 small, affordable works of art – kicks off the LeRoy Neiman Art Center’s festive holiday season with an opening reception on Friday, November 30th; works are for sale and will remain on display during the 2nd Annual Gift of Art Holiday Marketplace and other special events happening at the Neiman Center throughout December, and; 102 artists will wind down the exhibition with a series of youth and family workshops in the new year.
102 brings together a diverse group of artists from the immediate and global creative communities. Each, in his/her own imitable style, has been asked to interpret 10”x10” blank surfaces. This uniformity represents collective cooperation, yet the panoramic view of the entire exhibition is evidence of our incredible individuality and celebrates our broadly varied incarnations of space, objects, and life in general. Participating New York artists are presenting work infused with the spirits of city living, the Caribbean, Canada, Serbia, Puerto Rico and Japan. Other participating artists are sending their creativity from the Midwest, Texas, Africa and Austria, providing us with a rare glimpse of their art on the East Coast. Bringing all of these artworks together, from artists from all over the world, is a testimony of both the unity and universality of artistic vision.
