Bronxville Artists: Legacies Past & Future
2008 this event has passed
Curated by Art Historian and Conservancy member Jayne Warman, the exhibition was a gathering of privately owned works of art by Bronxville artists, both past and present. Because the art was on loan from the collections of private individuals (the majority of whom are Conservancy members), it was a singular presentation of artworks that probably will never appear together again. As Conservancy Co-chair Nancy Vittorini noted in her welcoming remarks, this celebratory event was a delightful partnership for the Conservancy and Concordia College. With the OSilas Gallery mission of integrating the visual arts into the cultural and educational life of Concordia’s campus and community, and the Conservancy’s quest to bring Bronxville artists’ work back home, it was a perfect marriage! Marilynn Hill, who, with Bob Riggs, has served as Tenth Anniversary Co-chairs, presented members with copies of an art catalogue that was published by the BHC in honor of both the anniversary and the exhibition. Warman followed with a talk in which she shared insights into the lives of the Bronxville artists and their canvases — elaborating on remarks she had given at the exhibit’s Concordia opening a week before. Members were able to enjoy a festive champagne reception while viewing the collection, thanks to the efforts of BHC events chair Mary Thaler.
