In the latest edition of The Art Students League’s Exhibition Outreach program, presented in partnership with ChaShaMa, nineteen League artists explore the difference between fire’s glow and frost’s glitter. Designed to provide more exhibition opportunities to League student/member artists, our Exhibition Outreach (EO) program displays the work of League artists in venues throughout the tristate area for viewing by hundreds of thousands of people. Fire and Ice, which is centrally located within Brooklyn Bridge Park at 360 Furman Street, will walk viewers through a vault of dreams and memories of the season, sentineled by its warmest and coldest imagery.

Aiko Cascio, Snow

Twenty-seven artworks in media ranging from painting to wood carving promise tension between opposing forms, yet Fire and Ice is ultimately a composition of harmony—a call and response of relationships. It reflects the nature of the work that faces artists, and the work that faces us all as we continue to trudge through uncertainty. A network of rods on a steel frame creates a sculpture of fire so dimensional that its shadow becomes a plume of smoke over its form. Translucent washes and thick strokes of blue and white create distinctive scenes of snow.

We are finding balance as the world blows hot and cold, searching for the warmth that will melt what has been frozen, searching for the cool center that lives within the heat of panic.
