This event has ended.

The gallery is pleased to present its sixth special project, "Landscape and Solitude," curated by Mako Wakasa, featuring works by Dan Asher, Amy Bennett, Toru Hayashi, Benjamin King, Tom McGrath, Yusuke Nishimura and Ofer Wolberger. Landscape painting is one of the oldest genres in both Western and Eastern art. In preparation for this exhibition, Wakasa explored the theme of solitude in pictured landscapes through a detailed examination of works by masters such as Poussin, Constable, Friedrich and Homer. She found that solitude can exist in both in grand and ordinary landscapes: some feature solitary individuals and others, devoid of people, instill a feeling of physical isolation in the viewer. In this exhibition, Wakasa explores the legacy of Landscape painting and solitude in the work of several contemporary New York artists.
