70 Artists at Stanton Street Exhibition

by Wendy & Nina
Jordin Isip has invited over 70 artists to participate in a group exhibition at Aidan Savoy Gallery. Providing each artist with two 5” x 5” wood panels, they were assigned the task of creating an image of one eye on each. These eyes will all hang on one wall of the gallery and ‘view’ the original works submitted by the same artists on the opposing wall. A Piece Apartcreates a world of dialogue between the acts of exhibiting and viewing art.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the ‘eye’ panels are going directly to FREC (Free Rural Eye Clinic), an organization run by Jordin’s uncle Dr. Guillermo de Venecia, an ophthalmologist who provides free eye surgery to blind and indigent people of the Philippines. With this humanitarian effort, Jordin has created the unique opportunity for visual artists to make works of art that will help to give people their vision back.

Jordin Isip received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and is an established, awarded and respected artist, illustrator and teacher. He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and teaches at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute.
