Passports is a show of 14 artists who have found inspiration outside of what is familiar to them and the culture they know. These artists have created work inspired by their travels to Antarctica, Mexico, Malaysia and various countries throughout the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa. The paintings and photographs presented in Passports show artists responding to new ideas, surroundings, landscapes, and cultures. These works are both introspective and outward looking. They bring awareness that we are all co-inhabitants of this Earth and that art, an international language, can unite and inspire us. All is interconnected and interdependent.
The exhibition is made possible by ACG Premier Sponsors Howard Hanna & David Phaff; and Kevin Dubner, Partner & Wealth Manager at Steward Partners Global Advisory, LLC. Additional support is provided by William Harris, Esq & Holly Katz and the New York Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and New York State Legislature.
