The Chair Show
October 1, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - October 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pmFree – RSVP Encouraged
The Chair Show explores the creativity, forms and traditions of seating. At center stage is the chair, endlessly recast as luxurious or austere, regal or intimate, straightforward or ironic. Chairs give shape to the ways in which we rest and recreate ourselves in private, or inhabit ‘seats of power’ in public. As supporting players of day-to-day existence, focal points of ceremonies, or revered objects of spiritual and sacred spaces, chairs are invested with diverse meanings and purposes.
The Chair Show includes sculptural, conceptual, functional and dysfunctional forms of seating, as well as paintings and installations inspired by chairs. The works, chosen by an open call and curatorial invitation, represent more than 25 artists from the regional artistic community.
Curator and docent tours of The Chair Show are available for groups of six or more. For more information, or to book your group tour, please contact Gallery Curator Amy Kurlander at akurlander@ArtsWestchester.org. Suggested donation: $10/person
On View: Oct. 1-19, 2019
