Three Graces: Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer
Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY
September 25, 2015 - January 3, 2016
The Three Graces were known in ancient mythology as enchanting goddesses who personified the primary attributes of creativity: Beauty, Wonder and Joy. In a recasting of this mythical triumvirate, the Everson introduces three contemporary artists from New York – Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer – whose spectacular abstract works embody these qualities. More than just a typical exhibition, Three Graces is also a revelatory experience, as the artists have created new works inspired by pieces from the Museum’s collection, which are also included. From Moyer’s biomorphic paintings, to Apfelbaum’s playful textiles, and Feher’s magical installations, Three Graces connects the past and present through beauty, wonder, and joy.
