We are pleased to be hosting the Tenth Annual Summer Exhibition of the New York Academy of Art.
Founded in 1982 by artists, scholars and patrons of the arts, including Andy Warhol, the New York Academy of Art is a graduate school that combines intensive technical training in the fine arts with active critical discourse. Led by a dynamic faculty including Senior Critics Steven Assael, Will Cotton, Vincent Desiderio, Eric Fischl, Judy Fox, Kurt Kauper and Jenny Saville, the Academy believes that rigorously trained artists are best able to realize their artistic vision. Academy students are taught traditional methods and techniques and encouraged to use these skills to make vital contemporary art.
The 2016 jury comprised of Matthew Flowers, Managing Director of Flowers Gallery, Ken Johnson, art critic for The New York Times, and Helen Toomer, Director of the PULSE Art Fair.
