Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Collective Perspectives” mixed media paintings by Outside the Line Collective at the Harrison Public Library, Halperin Building, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on view October 29 to December 1; meet the artists November 4 from 2 to 4pm.
These pieces are part of a series of art works done by a group of artists seeking to explore the interconnections and the differences in perception. The group of artists was assembled by Steve Purtee in 2013, and they come from a mix of fine art as well as theatrical background. Their work has been exhibited since 2015.
ARTISTS’ STATEMENT: Today fake news, alternative facts, tribalism, mainstream media, more than ever, try to shape our collective narrative creating an atmosphere of relativism. Reconciling these often conflicting messages to form a truth is an ongoing process. Through these paintings we explore the issue of how differing points of view can contribute to or conflict with shaping an overall image. Each section is developed independently by a different artist in their choice of style and medium. It is the relationships that develop when these differing approaches are brought together to form a single image that contributes to expressing the relative nature of what an image can be.
The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9:00pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9:30am to 5:30pm and Sundays 1:00 to 5:0 as0pm. For info call the Library at 914/835-0324 or see www.harrisonpl.org.
