For Immediate Release:

NYA Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition titled Conceptual, showcasing small-scale works from over 20 highly talented artists in a range of media. Overall, these artists will foster a critical conversation about how art is more than just surface, technique, and emotion; art is equally about ideas, concepts, and intellectual depth. Moreover, this group show highlights how the visual arts often embody concepts in novel or unexpected ways, underscoring how images have the power to shift perspectives, attitudes, and pre-conceived assumptions. The international roster of artists contributing to this fruitful dialogue include:

Noah D. Alessandro; Gel Apollo; Kimberly Aronow; Pol Attard; Gregory Brenner; Chelsea Criger; Peter Dam; Cynthia Pareja Dubin; Jessica Eppich; Angee Ferrin; Jennifer L. Gray; Anne Harkness; Mykel Hibbard; Phillip Johnson; Tsukasa Kambara; Karen Kirshner; Mai Kobayashi; Cynthia Kuden; Adam Lunderup; Mollee Marston; Elise Mendelle; Linda Meyer; Kseniya Oudenot; Chari Peak; Priscila Schott; Szeworski; Daniel Topp; and Ashley Vanore.

Pol Attard

The exhibition will open to the public on Thursday, July 4th with an initial reception from 6-9pm and a follow-up reception on Friday, July 5th from 6-9pm. After the Friday night reception, there will be an after-party for artists, curators, collectors, and patrons at the nearby Roxy Hotel, located between Walker and White Streets on 6th Avenue. The show will remain on view until Friday, July 26th. Visitors may see works during regular gallery hours: Monday through Sunday, 12-5pm.
