YONKERS, N.Y. -- Envy, one of the seven deadly sins, is making an appearance at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers through Sept. 26.
"Envy: One Sin, Seven Stories" at the Hudson River Museum is part of "The Seven Deadly Sins," the inaugural exhibition of the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance, a cultural collaboration begun in 2009.
Envy is interpreted by multimedia artist Adrien Broom in photographs and life-sized scenes from fairy tales.
Artistic signifiers of envy are seen all through the exhibition. In particular, an illuminated plinth showcases a hand-blown glass apple that appears in Broom’s photographs. This exhibition includes a photographic portrait gallery of fairy tale characters. Broom also creates three-dimensional storytelling in a box “stage sets.”
Broom lives and works in Brooklyn and is an artist with a penchant for the bizarre and beautiful. She has a degree in computer animation from Northeastern University and studied fine art in Florence, Italy, and art history in London.
Broom's photographs have been featured in numerous exhibitions in Connecticut and New York City, as well as in the American Dreamers exhibition at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Italy, in 2012.
The exhibion "Envy" is organized by the Hudson River Museum and curated by Bartholomew Bland, the museum’s deputy director.
Each Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance member organization is presenting one of the seven deadly sins this year. Sin, the favorite subject of poets and painters, also provides grist for the alliance's provocative summer programming, which is offered to the public and free to the members of Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance organizations.
