Michael Mazzeo Gallery is pleased to present Family Value, our summer portrait salon featuring the work of twenty-two artists, most of whom have never before exhibited at the gallery. The exhibition consists of recently made photographs, as well as drawings, collage, hand embroidery, and installation pieces which will remain on view from July 7 through August 5. A reception for the artists will take place at the gallery on Thursday, July 7, from 6 to 8PM.
Family Value presents observations and interpretations of contemporary family relationships. A salient reflection of our times, much of the imagery is filled with ambiguity, anxiety, and contradiction, yet with an equal sense of strength, compassion and humor. Free from traditional constructs and definitions, these artists provide us with a broad and insightful view into the complex intimacies that define our character and shape our lives.
Featured artists include Jacqueline Bates, Juliana Beasley, Annabel Clark, Kristen Dorata, Jess Dugan, Juliana Gamino, Jessica Hines, Katharina Lepik, Carlos Loret de Mola, Brigitte Lustenberger, Stacy Renee Morrison, Rachelle Mozman, Josh Quigley, Justine Reyes, Kerri Rosenstein, Chris Sellas, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Paul Shore, Gerald Slota & Neil LaBute, Hrvoje Slovenc, Will Steacy, and Amanda Tiller.
