> DESCRIPTION

Brooklyn Artists Gym presents
Rockers & Posers
BAG Gallery
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.
