Kick off the holidays with the opening reception for the Whimsical Winter Wonder exhibit. Reception will feature a panel discussion with artists featured in the exhibit.
Poe Park celebrates the holiday season with the Whimsical Winter Wonder exhibit, a new take on a classic winter theme. Showcasing the works of sixteen artists from across the world, this exhibit includes paintings, photos, sculptures, animations, and illustrations. The exhibition is on view in the award-winning Poe Park Visitor Center in the Bronx and was curated by Lucy Aponte and Laura Alvarez.
The works will be on display through January 31, 2014 and the gallery is open to the public Tuesdays - Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The center also offers artist workshops each Saturday in December. On December 14, artist Molly McIntyre will explain how to create a diorama. On December 21, artist Sandra Ayala explains what event inspired her art, and on December 28, curator Lucy Aponte discusses how the curators chose the exhibit's winter theme.
This event is FREE and open to the public. All ages are welcome.
QUOTATION FOR THE DAY
"I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities,
and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended."
