This event has ended.

Galerie Lelong will present "My Summer Show," an exhibition curated by Cristina Delgado. 14 artists use diverse styles and media--photography, painting, sculpture and assemblage--in their exploration of process and abstraction.

The artists in the exhibition represent a wide range of backgrounds, spanning generations and countries of origin. Though some of the artists (John Bock, Manfred Pernice, Sergej Jensen) are already well known internationally, a number of them--such as Jenny Monick, Alex Hubbard, Markus Amm--are early in their careers. My Summer Show demonstrates that, notwithstanding current trends, abstraction remains an integral language to contemporary artists.

Delgado, an independent art consultant based in New York, employed an intuitive visual approach and chose the artists' works most evocative of the season. In describing her association with summer, the curator writes:

breezy, lazy afternoons, hot beach days and cool waters, sharks, cookouts by the lake, fishing, swimming, kayaking, trout, bass, stripers, fly-fishing, shimmering waters, silence so loud it pounds, solitude & a slow fade into landscape, blue herons skimming the streams, an occasional bear sighting, rattlers, bacon cooking on skillet. My Summer Show = THIS.
