Up Close And Personal: May 28 – July 1
The second in a series, Up Close & Personal is a youth-led international juried exhibition at the historic, newly-renovated Trolley Barn Gallery on Main Street in Poughkeepsie, New York. Re-activating the iconic Trolley Barn through an innovative approach to youth empowerment through the arts, The Art Effect is putting youth in the driver’s seat of this incredible space, empowering them to engage community members and visitors in transformative arts experiences that they curate.
Up Close & Personal is a lively and touching exhibition that plays with scale and magnification as well as connects to the social and personal dimensions of the theme. Many of the artworks represent the forms of human intimacy, from acutely revealing portraiture and studies of our internal landscapes, to tableaus of family life. In a year characterized by social distance and instability, these works tap into what many of us need right now: friendship, family, human care, and connection.
