Gravity: Defined and Defied


Friday, October 9, 2015
9:00 am - 8:00 pm


Westchester Community College Center for the Arts is pleased to present, Gravity: Defined and Defied, a two-person exhibition comprised of multi-media artist Jaanika Peerna, and ceramic artist Kirsten Lyon. Using qualities in nature that embody and emanate buoyancy, movement and rhythm, both artists work with the properties of gravity and light. This exhibition includes large scale drawings and delicate ceramic forms which are synthesized into a built environment. The works inform our perception of the forces present in the movement of wind, the breaking of waves, and the interaction of light with art. Two bodies of work, as conceived by the artists, come together to provoke, bewilder, and draw us into works that are together both ethereal and fierce. Jaanika Peerna is an Estonian born artist who lives and works primarily in New York. Kirsten Lyon, a native to the Hudson Valley, lives and works in the area.

This exhibition will run from May 26-July 20, 2015 on Monday-Thursday from 9:00 AM-8:00 PM, and on Friday from 9:00 AM-11:30 AM.

This event is part of ARTSEE, a festival showcasing new works of art throughout Westchester County in celebration of ArtsWestchester’s 50th anniversary.
