A.I.R. Gallery’s annual summer exhibition at Governors Island, “New Art in an Old House”, will open on July 30th.

A.I.R, the first and foremost women’s collective gallery in the United States represents artists from across the country.   More than 20 of the gallery artists are participating in the Governors Island exhibition with works in various media including painting, drawing, mixed media, video and sculpture.  There will be several site-specific pieces both inside and outside the house.  A number of these works were first seen in the recent A.I.R. exhibition curated by Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, “In the Secret Garden”.

To describe the work for the range of visitors at Governors Island, each piece will be accompanied by a simple caption and plain-speak information about the artist, her concerns and working process.

Participating artists are Janet Decker Yanez, d’Ann de Simone, Jenn Dierdorf, Elise Dodeles, Jacqueline Ferrante, Shannon Forrester, Melissa Furness, Maxine Henryson, Carrie Johnson, Jody Joldersma, Cynthia Karasek, Julia Kim Smith, Jayanthi Moorthy, Nancy Morrow, Catherine Mosley, Ann Schaumburger, Patty Smith, Susan Stainman, Erica Stoller,  Amy Swartele, Jane Swavely, Erin Wiersma, and Joo Yeon Woo.

The A.I.R. exhibition will be at House 5B in Nolan Park on Governors Island, open on weekends, including Labor Day, from 12-5pm, through September 25th.
