Event description

Description

Enjoy an opportunity meet exhibiting artists during the exclusive preview of The Chair Show, with light bites and beverages. Online RSVPs are encouraged but not required. Online reservatios close on Friday, September 27 at 5pm. All are welcome!

The Chair Show explores the creativity, forms and art of seating. At center stage is the chair, endlessly recast as luxurious or austere, regal or intimate, straightforward or ironic. Chairs give shape to the ways in which we rest and recreate ourselves in private, or inhabit ‘seats of power’ in public. As supporting players of day-to-day existence, focal points of ceremonies, or revered objects of spiritual and sacred spaces, chairs are invested with diverse meanings and purposes.

The Chair Show includes sculptural, conceptual, functional and dysfunctional forms of seating, as well as paintings and installations inspired by chairs. The works, chosen by an open call and curatorial invitation, represent more than 50 artists from the regional artistic community.

On View in ArtsWestchester Gallery: Oct. 1-19, 2019
