This Wednesday, January 11, from 6 to 8 p.m., SVA’s Westside Gallery will host the opening reception for “It’s All in Your Head,” an exhibition of art by VCS fourth-year students curated by faculty member Amy Wilson. The show will run from January 7 to February 4, 2012. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
Here’s a comment from Wilson about “It’s All in Your Head,” taken from the exhibition overview on SVA’s website:
“The students of Visual & Critical Studies have once again created a body of works over diverse media and styles. These works share a cerebral nature, which is a reflection on the sort of program VCS is. The artists in the show have drawn from philosophy, literature and science in order to create their works.”
“It’s All in Your Head” includes work by Ranya Asmar, Annatruus Bakker, Ryan Brady, Joseph Bressler, Kelli Cheval, Emma Cooper, Zeke Decker, Autumn Eggleton, Gisel Endara, Gionna Forte, Maddy Gentile, Alex Goldstein, Natasha Jacobs, Eleni Kontos, Elektra KB, Marissa Leah, Jenna Lee, Jennie Martin, Molly Nadav and Jill Pucciarelli. It will occupy both the main gallery and much of the surrounding hall space.
The Westside Gallery is located on the ground floor at 133/141 West 21 Street in New York City; it is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is closed on Sunday and federal holidays.

I will return in a few days with more information about “It’s All in Your Head,” including images from the reception.
