This exhibition of work by the faculty of 92Y’s Art Center is an integral component of the 92Y annual exhibition program. The Art Center at 92Y is committed to the practice of hiring teaching artists: individuals trained in fine art, ceramics and jewelry who maintain their own professional careers while giving back as teachers. Featuring their work as artists in this exhibition is our way of acknowledging and celebrating their creative identities outside of 92Y. It is also a way to say thank you for the time and energy they commit to our students in the studios. While celebrating the talents of the current faculty, this exhibition also serves as a reminder of the long and rich history of the Art Center and the contributions of its prestigious faculty to the wider field of visual arts.
This exhibition, along with the Adult Student exhibition held in the spring, is generously supported by one of 92Y’s most dedicated supporters, Gilda Block and her late husband Henry. A patron in the best sense of the word, Gilda is also a regular participant in many 92Y programs from lectures to concerts to painting classes. Gilda experiences firsthand all that 92Y has to offer its community and has found meaningful ways to contribute to this effort for which we are ever grateful.
