The Painting Center is pleased to present MYTHOS, a group exhibition with artists
in the program League at Large at the Art Students League. The exhibition will run from January 3-28, 2023. Guest Curated by Clintel Steed, the group exhibition explores visual artists as storytellers. Bringing together work by seventeen artists who study at the League, the exhibition features a variety of disciplines in works inspired by classical mythology, legend, and global folklore. Tackling themes of love, discovery, and metamorphosis, MYTHOS shows how the tales that define our past can also populate our present. Artists include: Susan Barrow, Ezra Bookstein, Jeff Burchfield, Victoria Carter, Steve Danielson, Fran Del Re, Judy Fox, Karen Hopkins Harrod, Meg Kaizu, Seon Young Kim, Natalia Koren Kropf, Chia Hsuan Kuo, Cynthia Riddell, Emily Sabree, Helen Shulov, Tomoko Takeda, and Pinar Yilmaz.
A story of PROMETHEUS is A SYMBOL OF ENLIGHTENMENT AND ACCEPTANCE.
IT TEACHES US ABOUT THE REBELLION, THE CONSEQUENCES AND THE GLORY OF A HERO, WHO SACRIFICED HIS LIFE TO
BRING THE LIGHT TO HUMANKIND, EVEN THOUGH THE GODS PUNISHED HIM FOR UPSETTING THE BALANCE BETWEEN DIVINE AND MORTAL REALMS, PROMETHEUS REMAINS TO BE A HERO TO THOSE WHO ARE READY TO ACCEPT HIS GIFT OF LIGHT.
