[BKARTS] Cynthia Thompson: Within the Veil



 
Please join us next Tuesday, August 21st at 6:30 pm for an Artist Talk
& Reception 
Featured Artist Project
Cynthia Thompson: Within the Veil 
 
The work of Cynthia Thompson explores themes of religion and the human
body.  Raised in a Catholic tradition, her work references Adam and
Eve and St. Theresa, while exploring issues of body image, beauty,
desire, vulnerability, imperfection and body-centered guilt.    
Using handmade paper pigmented to resemble flesh, flocking the surface
with powdered soap, the materials evoke the subject as do the images
of hands and bodies.  
 
Suggested admission: $10/ $5 CBA members 
 
Also on view: (un)Contained Vessels
Both exhibitions close September 15, 2007
 
 
Support for the Center's Visual Arts Programs-Exhibitions, Featured
Artist Projects, and the Artist-in-Residence Workspace Program-is
provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional
support for the Center's programs is provided, in part, by public
funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
