Part of Virtual Bushwick Open Studios 2020

Amos Eno Gallery is pleased to present Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude, an exhibition of small works by gallery member artists and invited guests. All works are available for $500 or less. An opening reception will be held on Friday, December 18, from 6:30-9 PM EST at the gallery’s 56 Bogart Street location in Brooklyn, NY. The opening will also be broadcast live via Zoom beginning 5:30 PM EST and will be accessible via Bushwick Open Studios’ virtual weekend of programming.​

The title of this small works show references “The Inward Morning,” a poem by Henry David Thoreau communicating the sense of solace and solitude embodied within a sylvan wintry scene. In the poem Thoreau observes:

 

Lo, when the sun streams through the wood

Upon a winter’s morn,

Where’er his silent beams intrude

The murky night is gone.

 

Echoing Thoreau, works on view in the exhibition take as an inflection point the solitude and reflection of winter as well as the reality of lockdowns occurring in the wake of our currentpandemic. While solitude and isolation take precedent in the stanza’s beginning, Thoreau’s reflections mount a crescendo of optimism. Spanning sculpture, works on paper, painting, photography and mixed media, works included in Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude reflect on moments of hope and resilience, finding sunbeams of joy in the pouring through the cracks, reclaimed from the bleak uncertainty marking the present. 

This exhibition has a virtual exhibition component visible via  Artpot, an online platform and app that streamlines the entire art market process by using advanced technology to let art lovers experience artwork virtually.
