The Art League Gallery Presents Nocturne

By Editorial Team on January 24, 2022

What Lurks in the Shadows by Andrea Cybyk; Acrylic.


The period between dusk and dawn and all that it conjures is the inspiration for Nocturne, the first exhibit of 2022 at The Art League Gallery. It features a diverse collection of artworks—drawings, paintings, print-works, photography, sculpture, and ceramics—depicting the many dimensions of after-hours.

There are dark landscapes, starry vistas, and brightly lit cityscapes buzzing with activity. Night creatures—human and animal—are captured in repose, wide awake, or on the prowl. Dreamscapes appear in hazy recollection, and abstract works reference night in color, scheme, narrative, or emotive power. In Nocturne, night is serene, lively, mysterious, magical, and always captivating.

Nocturne was juried by award-winning children’s book illustrator and fine artist Becca Stadtlander and is on view through January 30.
