NIAD Art Center is pleased to present "A Light That Never Goes Out" in the main gallery, March 15 through April 26, 2013. Opening reception is Saturday, March 16 from 12:30-3:00 pm. For more information visit niadart.org.
Historically, NIAD Art Center has always produced strong paintings, both figurative and abstract. Recently a number of our artists, following many of the tenets set forth in the Remodernist Manifesto (Penned by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson, the declaration calls for the revival of painting as a possible return to traditional modernist values, such as authenticity, self-expression and autonomy), have been focusing on and experimenting with abstract movements from the mid-Century and sooner – Abstract Expressionism, Hard-Edge, Neo-Expressionism, and Supports-Surface. A Light That Never Goes Out: Continuing Traditions is a brief survey of a group of painters looking back at important art historic moments, as well as engaging with tradition. Included in the show are 17 recent works by Lisa Blevens, Eddie Braught, Raquel Charles, Arista Dawson, Darlene Farr, Felecia Griffin, Raven Harper, Peter Harris, Willie Harris, Sara Malpass, Karen May, Kevin Randolph and Jonathan Velasquez.
