We are excited to announce that the EYA2015: A Tale of Two Cities exhibition will feature this year twenty-three talented artists, carefully selected from outstanding art institutions in North America and other continents.
From budding young painters to seasoned professionals, this year's exhibition will represent a broad range of artists with distinct upbringing and artistic training, working in a variety of mediums including oil, pastel, and other innovative materials.
In a time of rapid change occurring all across the globe, we have selected the theme of A Tale of Two Cities to explore modern life suspended in midst of the struggle between the roots of our past and the newness of our present. This year's exhibition has asked the participating artists to explore the issues of interconnectedness and migration through their own depictions of cities that have been deeply engraved into their memories and identity. Through the works of our twenty-three artists with extensive international background, we wish to present a montage of experiences encompassing all four corners of the globe viewed through the lenses of young visionaries today.
