CONVERGE, Where Classical & Contemporary Art Collide, a significant group exhibition featuring 47 works by 31 contemporary representational artists and curated by former American Artist Magazine senior editor Allison Malafronte, includes an impressive painting by Salmagundi artist Kevin McEvoy.
McEvoy’s piece, Prisoners, comes out of an ongoing body of work started while volunteering at the Suffolk County, New York, jail in Riverhead, Long Island. A classically trained artist who works in oil, Kevin’s efforts to teach inmates at the prison to draw and paint have already caught the attention of local and national media.
The membership of Salmagundi was well represented at the show’s opening as evidenced by photos taken by Mitch Kahn and Tim Newton. CONVERGE hangs through November 27th at the 25CPW Gallery, located at 25 Central Park West, corner of 62nd Street, on Manhattan’s Upper Westside and can be viewed online.
