Brooklyn Artists Gym presents
Rockers & Posers
May 22 - June 5
Opening Reception: May 31, 6:00-9:00pm
The Rockers & Posers show features contemporary artists focusing their talent on portraits.
Represented in this show are the hated and the beloved. The dead and
the living. The heroic and the unassuming. They all come together to
speak to us the viewer. They stare at us head on. They passively look
at their feet. There are also a group of tough broads, women who
inspire us by their actions and their presence. All inspired the
artists to interpret their essence.
Each artist was inspired in unique ways, by big acts of heroism and
small deeds of kindness. They search for the meaning in a gaze. They
capture a moment in time, one facet of their subject’s personality.
The artists in the Rockers & Posers show work to reveal the true
inner life behind the everyday facade. They pay homage to the past and
celebrate the future.
