For Immediate Release
Kenny Schachter continues his ongoing series of itinerant group shows presenting
a large cross-section of emerging artists working in a wide range of mediums.
The current exhibition is based on the theme of religion. Belief-systems
vary in make-up, as well as the degree to which one adheres to a given faith.
There are casual followers, superstitious people fearful of retribution
should they morally stray, and extremists willing to blow up a government
to revenge perceived wrongs. It is hard to appreciate how, at this late
stage of the game, religion still holds such powerful sway over the thoughts
and imaginations of society. Yet people of persuasion are not above reproach
simply by nature of their strongly held convictions. As money rolls into
various churches, more men and woman of the cloth are indicted for embezzling;
rabbis are arrested for tickling adolescents on airplanes; and, in the name
of family values, abortion protesters snuff the lives of practitioners as
a means of protest. All the while, new cults pop up, the Moonies chug along,
now a force in the media business, and the Hare Krishna's continue to play
the tambourines and beat on their drums, singing the same old song.
Through painting, sculpture, video and installation, the artists in this
show will express, in some fashion, their own individual creed.
