Curators at Memorial Art Gallery compile a vibrant collection that balances contemporary works with exhibits spanning more than 5,000 years of international art. The biennial exhibition honors 100 contributions—nearly triple the number of works displayed in 2007 and 2009—from artists currently working out of western and central New York. A pair of jurors representing both the commercial and academic art worlds has anchored the event around paintings, prints, and drawings, which are then weighted by down sculptures, video, and macaroni models of the solar system. Start staring contests with the imposing figures in veteran artist Joy Adams's meticulous landscape paintings, or wonder at newcomer Dale Inglett’s impressionistic images of light on the human body.
