Bridgehampton’s White Room Gallery is opening its latest group exhibition, America on Fire: A Politically Incorrect Show, this Friday, January 8, with an artists reception on Saturday, January 9, from 5 to 7 p.m.
“January is cold, but politics are hot,” White Room Gallery says in a statement about the show released this week. “We plan to shock people out of their state of frozen animation by showing a collective artistic reaction to the extraordinary state of affairs we find ourselves in today,” the statement continues, adding, “Come with us for the wild ride. It’s time to wake some people up!”
Look for work with themes of money, power, politics, guns, celebrity and more by a healthy list of local and national artists at different stages of their careers, including Jeff Muhs, Paton Miller, Eric Ernst, Peter Spacek, Sue Zola, Suprina Kenney, David Geiser, Charles Waller, Rossa Cole, Kat O’Neill, Abby Abrams, Caren Sturmer, Michael Cardicino, Mark Zimmerman, Gina Gilmour, Anna Jurinich, Eva Iacona, Steve Mannino, Beth O’Donnell, Mark Seidenfeld, Melissa Hin, June Kaplan, Daniel Schoenheimer, David Slater, Mark Seidenfeld, Camille Perottet and more.
Works that have been revealed include a Rossa Cole gun construction made of books, an image of “Miss Monsanto” by Texas artist Sue Zola and a collage featuring the Monopoly man by Michael Cardicino.
The reception on Saturday promises “fun cocktails,” a Diplomatico Rum tasting and other surprises.
