Exhibition at Bronx River Art Center seeks to expand interest in Bronx artists
John Ahearn by Devon Rodriquez; Roy Baizan, Natural History by Heidi Johnson, Ingrid by Rigoberto Torres and John Ahearn

BRONX, NY.- BRONX NOW, on view July 14 to September 8, 2018, explores the community of Bronx-based artists creating remarkable work outside of traditional spheres. Curated by Laura James and Eileen Walsh, who work under the name BXNYCreative, BRONX NOW seeks to expand interest in Bronx artists.

The overarching narrative of the exhibition is the interplay of work from myriad origins together outlining the tenacious, unflinching, intrinsically motivated personality that the Bronx has come to be known for. On the precipice of the Bronx's shifting demographics, BRONX NOW creates an expositional bridge between community and artist. Featured artists explore the visual agency amongst art, community, and social justice.

Organized by independent curators Laura James and Eileen Walsh, who work under the name BXNYCreative, BRONX NOW marks another milestone in their effort to expand interest in Bronx-based artists. "Since we first presented BRONX NOW in 2016, it has been interesting to see the arts community grow and change, but there's always that common thread: the outspoken, true, and brash Bronx voice remains unchanged." --Eileen Walsh, co-curator.

The exhibit features artists with whose work is comprised of sculpture, work on paper, photography, painting, graffiti, and live performance.

Participating artists: John Ahearn, Benton C Bainbridge, Roy Baizan, Michael Paul Britto, Julius "Tkid" Cavero, CES, Ivan Gaete, Samantha Holmes, Heidi L. Johnson, MRS, Devon Rodriguez, Shellyne Rodriguez, Moses Ros, Edgar Santana, Rhynna Santos, Rigoberto Torres, and Natalie C. Wood.
