DESCRIPTION
Exhibition

Director's Choice: From Virtual to Actual

Dates June 5- June 23, 2012
Reception June 7th, 6-8pm
Chelsea NY: Viridian Artists is pleased to present "Director's Choice: From Virtual To Actual", the art of artists from the powerpoint presentation that occurred during our 22nd International Juried Competition. The gallery is located at 548 West 28th Street, also accessible from 547 W 27th Street. Curated by Vernita Nemec, the gallery director, the exhibit will extend from June 5-23, 2012 with an opening reception Thursday, June 7, 6-8PM.

The title of the show originates from the fact that these artworks were previously shown virtually in a power point presentation during the Juried exhibition last season. The gallery director felt the images to be worthy of their own exhibition and hence, the actual works have been brought now together in their physicality. That change from virtual to actual becomes the theme of the show.

Each of these artists has hers or his own personal obsession that serves as the starting point always present in the artistic search for ways in which to transform inner investigations into reality. The results of transforming these realities into art, remains open to each viewer's interpretation and becomes another translation of the virtual into the actual.

Although these artists were not "winners" of Viridian's 22nd International Juried Competition juried by Elisabeth Sussman of the Whitney Museum, Vernita Nemec, the gallery director of Viridian felt the art of these artists to be as uniquely interesting as some of those chosen by the Whitney Curator. And as we all know, professional opinions vary widely regarding what is the "best" art, for in the end it is a question of taste, even in the eye of the professional. And one of Viridian's missions is to provide meaningful exposure to under-known artists.
