Marcia Harrington,Director of Public Relations
Salena Gallery of LIU Brooklyn, in collaboration with Rush Arts Gallery and Skylight Gallery of Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza, presents "I Kan Do Dat," an exhibition of 87 artists curated by LIU trustee Danny Simmons and Oshun Layne. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24, 6 to 8 p.m., at Salena Gallery, which is located on the ground floor of the Library Learning Center at LIU Brooklyn.
The "I Kan Do Dat" exhibition explores contemporary abstraction through drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, and sculpture, as well as the range of visual vocabulary within the language of abstraction. Using large-scale physical brush strokes, intricate visual symbols, layering of mediums, and alternative materials, the artists in "I Kan Do Dat" showcase universal truths that draw from numerous cultural and spiritual backgrounds, and have truly personal meanings.
