A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Anomalistic Revolution, the first of two New York Member exhibitions in this year commemorating the 40th Anniversary of A.I.R., the first women artist run collective in the United States. Artists in the exhibition include Susan Bee, Liz Surbeck Biddle, Daria Dorosh, Regina Granne, Maxine Henryson, Nancy Lasar, Jisoo Lee, Louise McCagg, Catherine Mosley, Sylvia Netzer, Ann Pachner, Sheila Ross, Francie Shaw, Barbara Siegel, Elisabeth Munro Smith, Joan Snitzer, Nancy Storrow, and Jane Swavely.
Anomalistic Revolution was conceived and curated by A.I.R.’s accomplished new director Julie Lohnes, and features the work of 18 A.I.R Gallery artists. The theme reflects a celebration of the gallery’s past, present and future engagement with innovation and revolution both individual and collective.
Of the exhibition, curator Lohnes writes: “Individually each artist has established a studio practice and maintained a commitment to the arts for over twenty years, and in some cases for over forty, in order to contemplate visual concerns and to create art works that reflect her own viewpoint. Each art work is unique and this exhibition revels in this personal search, staged in private for some, in public by others, and celebrates each metaphysical revolution made.”
