SEEKING ENGAGEMENT NSA (NO STRINGS ATTACHED) Exhibition Opens Today at Lyons Weir Gallery

In Seeking Engagement NSA (No Strings Attached) curator Beth McNeill explores the work of eight artists in relationship to the audience's response to what they see. Featuring work by Jack Ceglic, Tom Dash, Tapp Francke, Julia Greffenius, Jeff Muhs, Nika Nesgoda, Darius Yektai and Gavin Zeigler.

The exhibition will be on view today, February 6- February 22, 2014, with an artists reception set for Thursday, February 6, from 6-9pm. The Lyons Wier Gallery is located at 542 West 24th St., New York, NY 10011. Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat, 11am-6pm. Nearest subway: C.E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave.

Art is a vehicle for artists to entice engagement with an audience. Whether literally or conceptually, art changes our personal and global consciousness. We want to know what engages you? Visitors are invited to leave a personal response that will be shared via social media.

Jack Ceglic approaches his work with immediacy, almost as an attack and yet he renders a tenderness in each piece. He creates candid and engaging life size portraits in oil stick and pastel on paper.

Tom Dash uses mixed media techniques to comment on social issues, music and popular culture. His collage and painted works in his "Pin Up" series project women and our contemporary culture.

Tapp Francke's latest mirror series engages the viewer in a process of self-reflection. The neon word and mirrored background forces the viewer to reflect upon the inherent personal meaning of what's being conveyed.

Julia Greffenius creates playful mixed media compositions of figures, landscapes, and abstraction. By exaggerating the highlights and softening the subject, her work appears illusory.

Jeff Muhs, known for his work as a painter, recently set on re-exploring his world championship background in sculpture, surprises us with "The ODB". This highly realistic hand sculpted clay figure shouts hip-hop culture and iconography.
