Amos Eno Gallery presents Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude, an exhibition of small works by gallery members and selected guest artists. All works are available for $500 or less. A virtual gallery opening will commence via Zoom (link above) beginning Friday, December 18th from 5:30 PM EST as part of Bushwick Open Studios’ virtual weekend of programming, with a reception to follow from 6:30 - 9 PM at the gallery.

The title of this small works show references “The Inward Morning,” a poem by Henry David Thoreau communicating the sense of solace and solitude embodied within a sylvan wintry scene. In the poem Thoreau observes:

Lo, when the sun streams through the wood
Upon a winter’s morn,
Where’er his silent beams intrude
The murky night is gone.

Echoing Thoreau, works on view in the exhibition take as an inflection point the solitude and reflection of winter as well as the reality of lockdowns occurring in the wake of our current pandemic. While solitude and isolation take precedent in the stanza’s beginning, Thoreau’s reflections mount a crescendo of optimism.

Spanning sculpture, works on paper, painting, photography and mixed media, works included in Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude reflect on small moments of hope and resilience, welcoming these sunbeams of joy piercing current clouds of uncertainty.
