The Art Students League opens the year 2021 with a feast in the form of a group exhibition: “At the Table.”
The artists set “the table” with diverse interpretations on the theme; some artists approach the table by creating thoughtful composition of food-based still lives, a tradition with a long history from Dutch Baroque Masters to Wayne Thiebaud’s pop desserts. Other artists set the table with abstractions and reinventions, addressing the personal and shared issues that “the table” can bring up. Who is “at the table,” and why? What is being served? This wide range of works responds, examining the abundance of emotion at the table — empty, or full.
The exhibit is featured at 1 Brooklyn Bridge Park at 360 Furman St – waterfront side, between Piers 5 and 6. The gallery is open Wednesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The exhibit runs until March 19.
