Islip Art Museum Faux Sho'

Faux Sho'
October 5 – December 28, 2014

Reception: November 9, from 1-4pm
Curated by Beth Giacummo

Faux Sho' promotes contemporary artists exploring methods and materials that highlight illusionism of all forms to fool the viewers' eye. Work exhibited will translate and redefine traditional trompe l'oeil realism. Faux Sho' exaggerates the false and recreates urban textures, street art parodies and scenes from life into two and three-dimensional imitations.

Artists Featured: Avital Burg, Kate Clark, Hannah Cole, Tim Conlon, A.J. Fries, Daniel Greene, Do Ho Suh, Robert C. Jackson, Brett Kern, Ben Owens, Naomi Safran-Hon, Mary Sweeney, Courtney Young, Dean West & Nathan Sawaya

In support of emerging artists, the Islip Art Museum's gift shop will feature a series of egg tempera paintings by Chaltin Pagan, curated by Jay Schuck.
