The idea behind Gallery104 May show "Nurture" is a physical represenation of how artists relationships, be it with their family, their religion, their environment, affect the growth and development of their art. We want to showcase how artists ideas are nurtured to create powerful statements of love and encouragement. We are seeing the process of caring for someone or something, cultivating growth, in a time where being able to care for others and our environment is so important.
NYA Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition focused on healing. The show will feature over 30 artists and be curated by Shane Townley, Founder & Director of NYA Art Center. Amid this contemporary moment plagued by social, economic, and political instability, many turn to various forms of cultural expression to gain perspective and escape from anxiety-inducing news reports. In response to an increasingly divided and distressed population, the artists in Heal offer powerful commentaries on individual and collective healing, be it in the bodily, environmental, or spiritual sense.
