Every season, we look forward to welcoming new art exhibits to each of The Yard locations. While we’re sad to see the previous artworks go (some of which have found new homes!), we always feel so invigorated by a fresh, new look every few months. So, what’s in store for the Winter Art Show at Bryant Park?
This week, we were thrilled to get a first look at new works by Henning Haupt and Alexandra Hammond at The Yard. The exhibit, curated by Site:Brooklyn and Hovey Brock, provides an exciting palette of colors and cathartic energy throughout our coworking space, and we can already tell that it will bring a bright season ahead.
On December 4th from 6-8pm, we’re celebrating the new exhibit with an art opening reception. Join us in viewing a full floor of art over light bites and drinks with our community of entrepreneurs and creatives. To RSVP, send us a note at email@example.com.
About the Artists
Henning Haupt’s works make space in non-representational paintings, objects, and architectural installations. Each project explores a different strategy between perception of spatial phenomena through empathy and a rational understanding to inquire a subject matter within the applications of materials.
Henning’s works at The Yard are devised of oil on mylar, and each piece features bold colors connected through active compositions that seem to challenge the concept of stillness and motion in the elements found in our world.
Alexandra Hammond is a multi-disciplinary artist and ambivalent utopian. She was born and raised in northern California and is now based in Brooklyn. Her projects are series of paintings, objects, and installations. The limitations of materials and context are in turn generative, resulting in investigations into the medium of painting, the experience and perception of color space, and other related problems.
The exhibit at The Yard features a collection of Alexandra’s oil on panel paintings, which encompass the warm tones and energy found in the natural and manmade world, traditionally in Summer. We’re excited to have her works brighten our environment in these upcoming, cold weeks!
We can already feel the transformative energy of these vibrant pieces and are excited to experience them as a community each day.
This exhibit is part of The Yard Art Program, which features seasonally rotating art exhibits and permanent collections across The Yard’s locations. You can read more about our current exhibits on our blog.
