Youth, Truth and Imagination
A collection of works by eight talented young artists
An exhibition of unique styles and varying subject matter extending the limits of form and content with artworks that are irreverent, entertaining, humorous, challenging, and beautiful.
These talented young artists exist simultaneously in the age of “social media” and in the age-old world of materiality; painting on canvas and carving wood. Like a weather report, they alert the audience to the future of art – issues of identity; reimagined figuration; situational episodes of conflict; the importance of camaraderie, the importance of contemplation; the history of storytelling; the necessity of foundational tradition.
In this time of technological change, political upheaval, war, and environmental degradation, Villa Charities and the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery support courage of expression and are committed to displaying art that is experimental, that challenges us, makes us smile, and gives us comfort.
This exhibition also offers the avid and new collector a timely opportunity to own artwork early in the artist’s rising career.
The exhibition includes work from Grace Swanek, Fabrizio Sclocco, Jobelle Quijano, Amanda Maccagnan, Serena Kobayashi-LeBel, Angelo Kalum Cavagnaro, Nicko Cecchini, and Miles Ingrassia.
