An open call curated by Melanie Delach
July 23 - July 30, 2021
Amos Eno Gallery proudly presents Good Neighbors, a group exhibition juried by Melanie Delach. Selected works reflect on what it means to be a neighbor, how neighbors interact and the particular impact that neighbors have exerted during our recent global pandemic. Works on view reflect a broad range of disciplines, spanning mixed media, painting, sculpture and installation.
Featured artists include: Mia Ari, Angela Arrocha, Ainsley Burrows,
Efrat Baler, Eric Anthony Berdis, Gabrielle Benak, Noga Cohen, Kelwin Coleman, Judy Giera, Kay Healy, Michael Kondel, Tania Qurashi, Heather Rubinstein, Joseph Lazaro Rodriguez, and Katherine Volpe. An opening reception will take place Friday, July 23rd at the gallery from 6-8 PM at the gallery’s 56 Bogart location in Brooklyn, NY. Visitors are invited to attend and meet the artists and juror to further explore the theme
of this group show, on view at the gallery for one week only through July 31st.
The selected theme, Good Neighbors, offers space to reconsider the networks we have formed through physical proximity: connections that
become particularly loaded during a period of isolation and quarantine. Come and experience this stunning range of works from local artists in the Tri-state area during this summer group show.
