Opening Reception, April 25th 6pm – 8pm
Showcasing the work of ten NYU Students in the Military and curated by Erica Leone. Participating artists include: Sara Banda, Mary Briatico, Michael Day, James Dreiling, Alex Gould, Will McElwaine, Juana Luster, AJ Pichardo, Kristina Shevory and Tim Thompson. The photographic styles and subjects uniquely reflect the vision of military personnel considering the home front after returning from war, and vary wildly—from classic landscapes to personal narratives; from street photography to abstraction.
The artists are all participants in Introduction to Photography & Video: A Creative Outlet for Veterans—a collaborative, creative forum for the NYU military community created and taught by visual artist Erica Leone. The weekly non-partisan workshops offer technical as well as aesthetic instruction. Dynamic in-class discussions compliment visual assignments and collaborative works with the NYU Veteran Writing Workshop Participants.
