Made in America

Solo Exhibition by Arline Jacoby
Saturday, November 12, 2011 to Sunday, December 11, 2011
Opening Reception: Sunday November 13th, 1 - 5 pm.

Arline Jacoby presents a mixed-media installation which draws the viewer into a world of American memorabilia with contemporary meaning.   She has created a complex assemblage of gleaned and crafted work that invites the spectator to explore their own interaction - mentally and emotionally - with American culture.

The artist uses painting, sculpture, collaging – raiding images of sports, symbols and sacred cows that compose the messages that quilt a collective consciousness.

Jacoby is one of the prime movers in the arts on Roosevelt Island, founder of the Island’s first artist run gallery, art instructor all over the world and widely exhibited painting, sculpture, ceramics.
