Chase Ferguson, Mixed Vehicles 2, Mixed Media, 2012-2013Visionary Streetscapes: Works from Pure Vision Arts
On view January 21 –  May 15
Opening Reception Saturday, January 30 at 6 PM

This exhibition at The City Reliquary presents works by Oscar Azmitia, Susan Brown, Chase Ferguson, and Howard Schefflin. All artists are from Pure Vision Arts, Manhattan’s first specialized art studio and exhibition space for artists with autism and other developmental disabilities.

The drawings, paintings, and sculptures featured in this exhibition reveal the spirit of New York through representations of the familiar. Each artist uniquely captures the frenetic energy and strange beauty of daily life in the city through images of commonplace people, places, and things. In some cases, the artist’s use of unorthodox materials adds an additional dimension of complexity to the work. The gallery below shows just a sample of the works on display.

All artwork in this exhibition are available for sale.
