Week at a Glance #1

To provide our audience with additional ways of engaging with our art and artists, we are introducing several new initiatives including Spotlight: Online Exhibitions, Work From Home: Inside the artist’s studio, and Hot Off the Press: Conversations about new work with gallery artists, among others. We are launching weekly posts that provide you with a look at what we will be discussing and sharing throughout the week. Each “week at a glance” will act as a homebase where you can refer to for links, resources, images, and more. Be sure to check in with us every Monday as well as throughout the week, as this is a growing resource that we will be adding to throughout the week.

His subjects are revealed in the lights and shadows reminiscent of Flemish paintings. In Pergolesi’s new series STARS, he creates environments that show women in scenes that are simultaneously normal and extraordinary.
