The Red Show

Published on December 2, 2019

Eleventh Street Arts presents The Red Show, an exhibition curated by Dale Zinkowski, featuring a selection of still life, figure, and portrait paintings by contemporary realist artists affiliated with Grand Central Atelier. Each painting featured in the exhibition explores the relationship between the psychological associations of the color red and the sublimity of masterful realist painting. 

“Symbolically, red is the color of life. Red attracts us, conveying vitality, warmth, excitement, passion. Its meaning relates, at bottom, to the human experience of blood and fire, the burning energy of human desirousness.” - Benedikt Taschen, Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images, 2010.

The exhibition will be on view Saturdays & Sundays 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and by appointment at Eleventh Street Arts, 46-06 11th St (at 46th Ave), Long Island City, NY 11101.  The Grand Opening will take place on Thursday, December 12, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
