Local Project Gallery announces its newest exhibition: Paradise in the City, opening on July 14th and on view through August 6th, 2016. This visually arresting exhibition explores the different perspectives of the idea of Paradise, from urban landscapes through abstract spaces, every artist has been picked to bring our idealistic scenarios to fruition.
In the style of a Salon d’Art, this collective exhibition is our 2016 Summer Salon, promoting local artists who will introduce us into their recent artistic explorations while serving our joint mission to increase and support our flourishing community at the same time.
The challenging idea of recreating paradises in an urban setting will amuse the audience with many different approaches, singular visual artworks and creative surprises. With irony, criticism, nostalgia, tenderness and freshness, our artists bring you a sensorial show, where you will be able to ‘smell’ the tropical fruits, ‘feel’ the sea breeze over your head and maybe get a tan from the dramatic color palettes.
No need to leave New York City…..Come and have a holiday break within our walls!
