New Exhibition: R.O.Y. G. B.I.V.

Fri August 4 - Fri August 18

Images in the Roy.G.Biv exhibition captures urban life—from the architectural
details in buildings located in the Czech Republic and Romania to upstate
New York—each portraying different views on life, people, and their artistic
expressions. Their work culminates in a colorful and vibrant exhibition rarely
seen in one place.

Thomas Conroy, our featured photographer states, “The artist-photographer
sees beauty not only in the spectacular but also in what others may see as
mundane: a wall, a familiar park, scenes from everyday life. It is as if he/she
is saying, “Hey, look at this. Have you ever considered how beautiful this is?”
Santiago Robertson-Lavalle, our featured student photographer, has recently graduated
from Delbarton and is star ting at Princeton in the fall. Santiago adds, “My visual
arts teacher threw me off balance when she urged me to take a two-year college
level art course. That felt like a large and imprudent commitment to an activity
unrelated to my career goals. Still, my teacher insisted I had talent and the idea
of expressing my creativity, a clearly unexplored aspect of my life, intrigued me
greatly. I took the chance and found new fulfillment. Art is a field I definitely plan
to pursue in college because I believe it is integral to my growth as a student
and as a person and rewards me with deep, lasting satisfaction.”

Gallery Curator, Gina Cerbone adds that the concept of Roy.G.Biv. was borne
out of the love of color. “I was impressed with Conroy’s work where he had
these vibrant colors of buildings and alleyways in Europe. Coupling this with
the explosion of color in Santiago’s perspective on graffiti was a perfect
combination for this exhibition.”
