DESCRIPTION

The New York Academy of Art (www.nyaa.edu) is pleased to present "private(dis)play," a collection of private works from contemporary American figurative artists.  An exhibition of artists' sketchbooks, secret drawings and studio paraphernalia, visitors will gain access to concept sketches, preliminary and comprehensive studies, academic and life-drawings, tracings and cartoons, and renderings which serve as a portal into the artists' practices and ideas. Whether intended as preparation for other work or simple musing, these diverse works illuminate the creative process.
