"Holiday Presence" Viridian Artists & Friends
December 6th to December 31st, 2011
Opening reception Thursday December 15th, 6-8PM
Chelsea NY: Viridian Artists is pleased to present "Holiday Presence", an exhibition of art by Viridian Artists & Friends, December 6th to December 31st, 2011, at our new location at 548 West 28th Street, also accessible from 547 W 27th Street on the 6th floor. There will be an opening reception Thursday December 15th, 6-8PM. In addition, Viridian is bringing back its Holiday Store of art cards, prints, artist books, small art, art jewelry etc., all available for under $100. The winter holidays, over time, have come to focus more on gift giving & exchange, than on the religious origins of this time period. So, with this exhibition, "Holiday Presence" Viridian has taken the liberty of playing with the idea of "presence" to go beyond the thought of giving "presents" and presenting a more all encompassing sense of holiday "presence". The holiday season is much more for us all. It's a time of coming together with our families & friends, a time to take a break from work & spend a few days away, a time to celebrate another year almost over and a time to find just the right gift to let those close to us feel our caring. A time to write that letter about all that's happened this past year and mail it along with our holiday greetings to our whole address book. It’s a time of celebration and promises to make the future better. A time for hot mulled cider and eggnog, a time for old fashioned memories & doings, a time for home baked cookies and a time for sending greetings to those far away but still close in our hearts. It’s a time to come together with a holiday spirit and presence. Oh, and those presents of art would be the perfect! Each year, in a spirit of holiday giving and sharing, Viridian Artists take this time to enlarge their holiday presence by inviting guest artists to show their creations along with us and to give them all an excuse to create some small but special artworks to share during season of celebration, contemplation and giving. Feel free to dress up in tails black ties & beaded dresses to add to the holiday or, just come in you jeans. Come and add your holiday presence to our celebrations on Thursday December 15th! Or if not the, hoping to see you sooner or later!
