Flowers is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the New York Academy of Art‘s 5th Annual Summer Exhibition. The show will open with a reception on Thursday, June 23rd from 6 - 8pm and will remain on view through August 6th 2011.
This highly anticipated group show brings together a wide range of new work by more than 50 established and emerging talents. Comprised of paintings, drawings, limited-edition prints and sculpture, the chosen works will be selected from over 500 submissions by jurors Matthew Flowers, Carter Foster and Julie Heffernan.
Flowers and the Academy have previously collaborated several times, including two 3-person exhibitions by artists who have participated in past Summer Exhibitions. Former jurists include Eric Fischl, Jenny Saville, Will Cotton and David Salle.
The New York Academy of Art was founded in 1982 by artists and collectors, including early trustees Andy Warhol and Tom Wolfe. The Academy’s rigorous MFA program promotes the development of an artist’s personal vision and the creation of vital contemporary art by building on the enduring traditions of figurative painting, drawing and sculpture. The Academy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational and cultural institution.
Flowers is an internationally recognized gallery with locations in London and New York. The program in both the UK and US comprises all media by established and emerging artists, is an active publisher of prints and multiples, and has a growing department in contemporary international photography.
