DESCRIPTION

Taking its cue from the revival of neon in art and pop culture, this exhibition examines the ways in which the medium has been repurposed in painterly, photographic, and sculptural practices to reflect the cadence and drama of our media-saturated cultural landscape. The artists in New Neon use the vibrancy of neon light and pigment to capture our attention and our emotions. The resulting works can be interruptive, shocking, and even humorous. 

 

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 5, 2013, 6:00-8:00pm
