NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance
today unveiled the latest in its ongoing series of public art exhibits, showcasing paintings by district-based artist Bobbi Van.
Located in a street-level window on 215 West 38th street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public from April 20th through June 20th. Bobbis installation is part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations throughout the year.
Bobbi is a truly gifted and inspirational artist, whose work captures a sense of balance among the disparities that life brings, said Barbara Blair Randall, president of the Garment District Alliance. We are absolutely delighted to showcase her wonderful artwork through the Garment District Space for Public Art program, and we certainly hope everyone will pay a visit to this installation.
Inspired by lifes contrasting elements movement and stillness; thought and action; arrival and departure Bobbi strives to capture a space of harmony in her artwork through establishing a balance in light, color and motion, portraying both strengths and vulnerabilities. She crafted The Visit and The Dance on a clear vinyl surface to create a sense of transparency and to explore these dualities.
Originally from Massachusetts, Bobbi currently occupies a studio in the Garment District, and has exhibited her artwork in Mexico, Hong Kong and in other venues across the United States. Her work will be on display at the Flux Art Fair in Harlem beginning on May 13th and running through May 17th.
