New York, NY — The New York Academy of Art is pleased to announce its Annual Summer Exhibition, a juried show featuring new works from the Academy’s community of established and emerging artists. Opening on June 19th at Flowers Gallery in Chelsea, the show is curated by three celebrated members of the art world: Laura Hoptman, curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, Patterson Sims, President of the Board of Independent Curators International and Matthew Flowers, Managing Director of Flowers Gallery. The exhibition aims to create a visual dialogue that disrupts expectations of the usual world of figurative art.

“The Academy continues to prove, with its alums, instructors and students, that it is offering something unique to today’s contemporary art conversation: top notch draftsmanship,” says Laura Hoptman of the works she and her fellow curators selected from over from 700 plus entries.

In collaboration with Flowers Gallery, the Academy will showcase its conceptually aware artists to a global audience. Flowers Gallery is an internationally recognized gallery with locations in London and New York. The dual programs exhibit a range of media by established and emerging artists. The gallery is an active publisher of prints and multiples, and has a growing department of contemporary international photography.
