Letter from the Editor...Special Edition

Hornsby's "Fracture 1" will be featured in the "Black and White Show", Brooklyn, NY, 
during the month of August, 2015.

Dear Friends,

I am happy to announce that our president, Chris Hornsby, has been selected as one of 100 artists out of 1,358 entries to showcase his latest work in New York City! The first of his latest series "Fracture" will be showing at the second annual “Black and White Show” in Brooklyn, N.Y., sponsored by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition Gallery. The show runs from Aug. 1-23, 2015.

The series is a haunting exploration into the fractured human nature and the fight within. “Fracture 1,” the piece selected for the "Black and White Show," is the combination of stark black, white, and gray “shard” imagery that includes a total of 37 individual paintings that make up one large-scale 7’ 5” x 7’ 5” painting. The impression is an overwhelming feeling of a powerful struggle between two opposing forces.

The “Black and White Show” is a juried fine art exhibition comprised solely of black and white artworks created by artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D media, including film and video. New York’s art elite, Christiane Paul, the curator of Media Arts at the revered Whitney Museum of American Art, juried the show.

Of this event, Chris said, "Art is a personal passion of mine of which I’m grateful to express both in my branding design business as well as in my fine art pieces. To be able to show and share my personal artwork is always quite an honor, and to show in New York, one of the leading art capitals of the world, well, that's something special."

Please visit Chris' new art gallery website at http://hornsby.gallery and join me in congratulating him on this new adventure.

Best regards,

Bridget Hornsby
