Viridian Artists is pleased to present " Director's Choice: From Virtual To Actual",  curated by Vernita Nemec, the gallery director, featuring a selection of artists who entered our 24th International Juried Competition in 2013. The gallery is located at 548 West 28th Street, also accessible from 547 W 27th Street. The exhibit extends from September 9th to 27th, 2014 with an opening reception Thursday, September 11, 6-8PM.

Each of the 13 artists in this diverse exhibition has her or his own personal obsession that serves as the starting point of their search to transform their 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.

The art in this exhibit takes many unique forms from the knitted “Knots” of Joanne Kidd's artist book and the mixed media wall sculpture “Batter Up” of Aimee Hertog to a wide variety of photographic approaches. Joshua Greenberg explores abstraction, Marla Hoffman reflections, Srividya Kannan Ramachandran poetry, Christopher Ruane religion and Marcia Lloyd autobiography.

The dress appears in a variety of meanings & executions: Robin Becker's dress with photo transfers, Leslie Sheryl's gown of plastic bags & netting, Mark Kolessar's “Second Skin” of  canvas, acrylic, plastic, wood & metal.

Many of the works  are not what they seem to be. Daniela Izaguirre's watercolor and graphite image on vellum looks like real objects, Emma Buck's digital photograph intentionally resembles a painting while Kristin Enck's painting “Slosh”presses the “pause” button, suspending both time and motion to freeze the image as a photo might. 

Although these artists were not “winners” of Viridian's 24th International Juried Competition,   their art is uniquely interesting. Viridian's Director's Choice Exhibitions arise from one of Viridian's primary missions: to provide meaningful exposure to under-known artists of all ages whose art merits wider attention.
