Beginning August 3, the Bowery Gallery presents its annual national juried exhibition, now in its 30th year. The show has been selected in previous years by such well-known figures on the art scene as Janet Fish, Fairfield Porter, William Bailey, Joan Snyder, Jed Perl and Lance Esplund, among others.
This year’s juror, Clintel Steed, a nationally recognized painter, received his MFA from Indiana University in 2001. Among the venues where he has shown his work are Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects in New York, M + B in Los Angeles, and M. David and Co. in Brooklyn, New York. He is the recipient of the John Koch Award from the National Academy of Arts and Letters. His work has been discussed in Hyperallergic, artcritical.com, and the New York Sun. Mr. Steed has taught at the New York Studio School, the Chautauqua Institution, Pratt Institute, and Western Connecticut State University. He lives and works in New York City.
The exhibition chosen by Mr. Steed includes 52 works by artists from across the country, from Texas to New York. Mediums were oil, acrylic, gouache, mixed media and pastel. Viewers of the exhibition will find pictures by artists new to the New York scene, as well as established artists. The show reflects the mix of tradition-conscious abstraction and figuration that has characterized the Bowery Gallery over its more than fifty years in New York.
