Founded in September of 2012 “one river” west of New York City, One River School of Art and Design has embarked on a mission to change art education in America. One River School's exhibition program is dedicated to presenting artwork from some of the most compelling emerging artists in the world. Our program focuses on showing a diverse set of artists, each of whom demonstrate a unique approach to art making today. Our exhibition program wonderfully complements our school's core mission to develop the next generation of great artists We believe that one of the best ways to educate our students is to share current work from inspiring artists right here in our space and we are grateful to have access to world leading artists who work and live on both sides of One River.
One River School of Art & Design is pleased to announce its new Art Expand Program for 2016. Art Expand is a series of solo exhibitions by emerging artists, each of whom demonstrate a unique approach to art-making today. “The act of sharing what’s relevant and potentially important allows us to demystify contemporary art for people who don’t get an opportunity to visit galleries in New York City,” says Matt Ross, Founder of One River School of Art & Design and Curator of Art Expand. “I’m in awe of the artists who are participating in Art Expand—they embody all that is good in contemporary art today. They’re smart, gifted, hardworking, and share a perspective that’s clearly articulated in their works.”
