The exhibition “Inside/Out” features paintings, drawings and sculpture depicting interiors and exteriors. From literal landscapes and aspirational places to domestic scenes and interiors of the mind, the works in “Inside/Out” encompass both literal and psychological spaces. The works in “Inside/Out” are by alumni of the New York Academy of Art, a graduate school that combines intensive technical training in the service of vital contemporary art.
“The 99%: United We Stand” by Jason Myers
Presented by Long-Sharp Gallery
The 99%: United We Stand is an installation of 99 intimately scaled portraits by artist Jason Myers. Each portrait portrays a faceless, nameless member of the 99% -- each unknown to most except the IRS and the NSA. All are asked to place their faith in God and .GOV while the 1% make the decisions that impact their daily lives. But, when viewed together, the 99% is a powerful force to be respected and heard.

“All Proceeds” By Pablo Helguera
All Proceeds is a series of conceptual works by artist Pablo Helguera (Mexico City, 1971). The works in All Proceeds function precisely as a series of paintings that exist in the conventional economy of the art fair but nonetheless openly declaring the way in which their potential sale will result in benefiting a particular cause. Each piece in All Proceeds overtly declares that the entirety of the funds directed toward the sale of each individual art work will be donated directly to a particular organization that serves a cause that is important to the artist.
