About the Show: 

Atmospheric or aerial perspective refers to the traditional painting technique of creating an illusion of depth or distance by making objects appear less detailed and typically bluer than nearer objects, traditionally utilized in creating realistic landscapes. It is described as the air and all the particles in it, from dust to pollution that lingers between the eye of the viewer to the distant object that is the subject.
Contemporary perspective of what exists in that air is vastly different however than in past eras. These artists touch on the subjects of smog and pollution, that our air is full of invisible wifi signals, consider thoughts and ideas as objects floating in the air, and inspect the connection to our larger celestial atmosphere which is full of satellites that can cut through all of that distance taking incredibly detailed photographs.
This exhibition takes a new approach to visualizing what exactly is the air we breathe and live in today. How that air shifts and moves through storms, thought forms and energetic waves and how everything from science to social philosophies creates that atmospheric haze that alters how we view our contemporary landscape. The overall exhibition will still highlight that gray and bluish tone of the traditional atmospheric perspective but with pops of an orange-copper glow symbolic of more modern sunsets. These color choices hinting at that technical artistic training and understanding each artist holds despite their choice to forego the traditional landscape in their imagery.
Artists Include:
Beth Barry, Fran Beallor, Yvette Cohen, Jane Dell, Karen Fitzgerald, Pauline Galiana, Elanor Goldstein, Peggy Klineman, Barbara Lubliner, Elizabeth Mead, Gammy Miller, Janie Milstein, Linda Lee Nichols, Anne Raymond, Phyliss Rosner, Andra Samelson, Linda Schmidt, Linda Stillman, Audrey Stone, Robin Tedesco

"But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized - at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do - it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds." -- Barack Obama

Civil Discourse creates a visual dialogue challenging us to move beyond the historical and current divisiveness of red state/blue state politics and the turmoil our country is presently experiencing. 
NYC and Atlanta artists, each pursuing a studio practice that connects in surprising ways, shift the present angry and finger-pointing discussions to one that finds common ground. Unbeknownst to these artists, the works they create are in conversation with each other.  Many works are not mirror images and their relationship to one another might not be immediately evident. Civil Discourse connects these artists through imagery, treatment of subject matter, materials, technique or concept and celebrates the collective dialogue discovered in their art.
