Featuring 34 works of art by 19 artists, this exhibition is the result of an open call for work that was open specifically to BIPOC artists from upstate New York. This exhibition is a first step to becoming better acquainted with more BIPOC artists in our region as we plan our 2021 calendar and beyond. Artwork in this exhibition includes painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing and more in a wide variety of style and technique.

The exhibition will be held in the second floor gallery space as well as on our interactive exhibitions website. (Pictured above: Detail of Small World Network by Mizin Shin.

About the title: Figure-ground organization is part of Gestalt Psychology, which states that the whole of anything is greater than its parts. We are striving to make our collective whole even more representative of our region of upstate New York.

The term BIPOC is an acronym which stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
