Amos Eno Gallery is pleased to present Peace Among Savages, a group exhibition of work about guns and gun violence on view July 2 – 23, 2016. A reception will be held on Friday, July 8 from 7-9 PM at the gallery’s new location at 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY. The gallery will be open late until 9 PM on Friday, July 15 as part of the building-wide "Bushwick Hot Summer Nights" art event.
“Part of this exhibition is exposure therapy,” says exhibition curator Mary Gagler, “In a typical group show, the piece about guns usually shocks and repels. This exhibition takes guns as the starting point to see what we can uncover about our relationship to a weapon as ubiquitous as it is taboo.”
Based on a national call for artists, Peace Among Savages features painting, photography, sculpture, weaving, printed matter and game design by John Adkins, John H Clarke, Miguel Cortinas, Emma Covode, Brooks Dierdorff, Nancy Elsamanoudi, Jonathan Frey, Ingrid Goldbloom Bloch, Velvet G.Oldmine, Goomba, Kathleen Greco, Craig Hill, Katherine Jackson, Matthew Keff, Jason Laning, MadMFia, Rosemary Meza-DesPlas, Rojava Solidarity NYC, Stass Shpanin, Abigail Smithson, Robin Snyder, Ryan Steed, Betsy Stout, Kento Saisho and Taehee Whang, Bubblegum Whiskey, Courtney White, Scot J. Wittman, Kristen Woodward and Raymond Yeager.
Amos Eno Gallery provides a full, active season of exhibits by emerging and mid-career visual artists, educational and public programs for its community.
