Brooklyn, NY- Non-profit organization Art Connects New York (ACNY), is pleased to announce the opening of “Pressing Relations” on April 10, 2013 at ACNY Exhibition Space. “Pressing Relations” will feature the works of 2012 Rhode Island School of Design printmaking graduates, Amanda Thackray, Raine Vasquez, Amber Heaton, Karen Lederer, Yoorim Kim and Evan Mann. Although the exhibition is composed against the backdrop of printmaking, “Pressing Relations” will also utilize ideas of the multiple and the matrix for paintings, drawings, installation and video. “Pressing Relations” explores at its source the cross-pollination that occurs between artists working in close proximity to each other. These relationships manifest themselves in the often overlapping content of their art. This occurs within communities, within environments, with form and color, with language, and as themes of communication and phenomenology, forming the foundation for these works. This title also reflects a sense of earnestness from which these artists create their work. “Pressing Relations” will run until May 15, 2013, with an opening reception on April 10, 6:30-8:30pm at ACNY Exhibition Space, 220 36th Street, B-515, Brooklyn, NY 11232. ACNY Exhibition Space is open Monday-Friday, 12pm-6pm. For more information on ACNY Exhibition Space, please visit www.artconnectsnewyork.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
