A group exhibition of artists selected from the chashama Workspace Program, where emerging and mid-career artists create art in a nurturing and affordable environment.

"Ars Nova", is borrowed from a term which generally applies to a musical style from the Late Middle Ages. It translates from Latin to "new art". Flourishing in the 14th century, Ars Nova was free in character, marked by variety in rhythms and melodies.

For us, the unifying factor of  the artwork in this exhibition parallels the Ars Nova movement in the sense that there is a freshness, and a "newness" beyond the formalities and traditions of image making. All of the artists were selected from the chashama studio program, where emerging and mid-career artists create their art in a nurturing and affordable environment. Located in the BAT (Brooklyn Army Terminal) buildings, chashama, in partnership with Tabla Rasa Gallery, represents the new frontier of arts and culture in Sunset Park.

Artist, Kenneth E. Parris III, discusses the role of the figure in his paintings with William Petroni on Saturday, January 23rd at 2:30 pm.  Mr. Petroni is an Art Collector, General Manager for Cecily Brown, Managing Director of Cristin Tierney Gallery, and has danced with Melissa with the Pam Tanowitz Dance Company.

The conversation will focus on Kenneth's series inspired by the backstage life of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company on their final world tour and how this evolved into a new body of work that investigates the exploitation of success and the American Dream. The discussion includes Modern Contemporary Dancer and former Cunningham Company member Melissa Toogood, a subject in both bodies
