YONKERS, N.Y. -- The Yonkers Art Gallery has changed its name to Riverfront Art Gallery and will be exhibiting a new show throughout April.
“In and Out of the Can” by artist Howard Better will have an opening reception and artist talk 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday. The exhibit will feature thousands of 3-D can collage sculptures. Influenced by Better’s many years as a filmmaker and sourced from the artist’s collection of vintage comics, magazines and newspapers, the exhibit evokes a contrast and conversation between mass production and individuality. The series is hung from the ceiling with an accompanying pathway, creating an ethereal and filmlike sequence of stories to view.
The second event begins Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Participants inspired by the exhibit will create their own 3-D can collage art based on personal stories and their place in the community using recycled cans and papers.
To register, contact RiverfrontArtGallery@gmail.com with your name and number of participants. There will be a $5 suggested donation for each participant.
