Patch featured the Pace Art Gallery launch of its Substance exhibition in "Pace University Art Gallery Launches 'Substance'"

Pace University Art Gallery has launched the Substance exhibition and associated programs that include online artists' talks, an artist residency, and a virtual exhibit – all culminating with an in-person exhibit in the fall 2021, the University announced today.

Substance brings together five abstract artists—Diego Anaya, Liz Atz, Linda Ekstrom, Adebunmi Gbadebo, and Alberto Lule—who express meaning via their materials rather than through representational imagery.

To celebrate the launch of the digital exhibit, at 6:30 p.m. on March 1, the Gallery will host a Zoom artist talk by Diego Anaya. Anaya's work is minimalist in imagery, yet he celebrates his Mexican heritage through the use of ground corn, corn ash, and sand with which he creates rough and uneven surfaces. The texture compels the viewer to examine the work closely and even to want to touch and smell the granular surface, creating an immediate and intimate connection between the viewer and the artist.
