Amos Eno Gallery proudly presents Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude, a group exhibition of small works priced to sell at $500 or less. A virtual opening will take place via the above link on Zoom on Friday, December 18 from 5:30 PM EST in coordination with Bushwick Open Studios’ virtual weekend of programming, while an opening reception will begin at 6:30 - 9 PM at the gallery’s 56 Bogart Street location in Brooklyn, NY. The gallery will also host virtual exhibition tours via the same Zoom link as part of Virtual Bushwick Open Studios: the virtual tour schedule is Saturday, December 19th at 2 pm and 4 pm and Sunday, December 20th at 2 pm.

The title of this small works show references “The Inward Morning,” a poem by Henry David Thoreau communicating the sense of solace and solitude embodied within a sylvan wintry scene. In the poem Thoreau observes:

Lo, when the sun streams through the wood

Upon a winter’s morn,

Where’er his silent beams intrude

The murky night is gone.

Echoing Thoreau, works on view in the exhibition take as an inflection point the solitude and reflection of winter as well as the reality of lockdowns occurring in the wake of our current pandemic. While solitude and isolation take precedent in the stanza’s beginning, Thoreau’s reflections mount a crescendo of optimism.

 

Spanning sculpture, works on paper, painting, photography and mixed media, works included in Where’er His Silent Beams Intrude reflect on small moments of hope and resilience, finding sunbeams of joy in the small moments we reclaim from the bleak uncertainty marking the present.
