Viridian Artists, Chelsea in New York is pleased to present an exhibition of outstanding art by artists who are part of Viridian Artists’ Affiliate program. Featured are the artists Laura Rutherford Renner, Joshua Greenberg, Arlene Finger, Ed Ferszt, Steffani Bailey, Sabine Carlson, Michael Reck, Jenny Belin, Brett Poza.

Sometimes it takes “Just a Moment” to create a powerful artwork, other times it can take years. Usually an artist can tell when a piece “works” or if they have gone too far and must begin again. These artists in this exhibit are each inspired in their own unique ways, concerned with different goals and implementing a wide variety of materials and methods.

The creative process is often beyond explanation, even by the artists as they engage in creating, but here are a few thoughts from artists we all know to remind us how important the creative moment is:
“Art is a guarantee of sanity.” – Louise Bourgeois
“Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” – Andy Warhol
“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” – Bob Ross
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” – Leonardo da Vinci
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
“Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.” – Claude Monet
“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”– Georgia O’Keeffe
“Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it.” – Ai Weiwei
“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” – Salvador Dali

We look forward to seeing you soon at Viridian and sharing “Just a Moment” together.
