The Art League Gallery presents the September 2022 Open Exhibit and Impact: Reflections of 9/11, by George Robert Overhiser Jr. Both are on view through October 2.

Diverse works in different mediums are the feature of Open Exhibits at The Art League. This month’s exhibit has 103 artworks in oil, acrylic, watercolor, ceramic, photography, printmaking, and more. It was juried by painter Aaron Morgan Brown.

After escaping from the South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001, painter George Robert Overhiser Jr. witnessed the carnage as he stood before a vendor’s cart three and a half blocks away. Overhiser expresses the mayhem of that tragic day in Impact: Reflections of 9/11, an exhibit of 20 pieces that include stylized gouache on canvas; oil paints on the faceted stainless steel from which vendor carts are made; gouache-painted canvas applied to the diamonds pattern on the carts; and curved stainless steel, oil-painted with mixed media mobiles.
