fosterFoster/White Gallery, 220 Third Avenue S., opens from 6-8pm with a group show wherein gallery artists were asked to contribute a work, new or old, that rang true to the theme of Resolution. For some, that represents a decision firmly made, a change of course or direction. But there are a myriad of ways to interpret the call. A resolution is a problem solved. It is a symptom cured, a reduction of the whole into parts, a conversion of one form to another, a discordant sound corralled into harmony. This exhibition offers a range of media and subject matter, celebrating each artist’s unique engagement with their respective discipline. Image: After Claude Monet: Nympheas 1 by Carol Inez Charney.
