July 9 - July 27

The New York Society of Women Artists announces their upcoming art exhibition: BETWEEN THE LINES

Opening reception: Thursday, July 11th, 2019, 5pm – 8pm

Reading between the lines means discerning the opacity of language—how it can hide secrets. A reader or listener guesses at these secrets, which may be encoded just for him or her. In The Tale of Genji lovers communicate through poems with suggestive undertones and references. They are speaking and writing from their deep knowledge of Japanese and Chinese poems, learned as they practiced calligraphy from anthologies. Even the quality of the calligraphy can be an encoded signal of real accomplishment and originality or the banality of the calligrapher’s personality.

In just such a way, painters and sculptors do their complex work, based on skill, expertise, education, experience, and imagination—and yes—private and deeply felt messages or codes. One artist may be obsessed with maps of places meaningful to her, while others may paint landscapes, people, objects and abstract forms that match their living experiences or dreams. The viewer senses the presence of the reality “between the lines.”

Gallery hours Tuesdays – Saturdays 11am – 6pm
