KATONAH, N.Y. – Sasha Gordon, a young Somers resident, will be the first artist featured in an “Emerging Artist” exhibition at the Anderson Chase Gallery. The exhibition will run from June 3 to June 24. An opening reception will be held 3:30-5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10.
Located at 65 Old Bedford Road in Goldens Bridge, the gallery is part of the Katonah Art Center, where Gordon began studying art at the age of 5, continuing classes throughout her school years and participating in the center’s Portfolio Development program.
Some of her past accomplishments include winning the Somers High School Award for Excellence in Studio Art and first place in the iCreate Competition at Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Conn. Her work has been featured in the “Team Dream presented by TopShop” exhibition and the Young Artist 2016 exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art, and was selected for permanent display in the New York State Capitol Building in Albany.
Currently a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Gordon will be exhibiting a variety of recent paintings and drawings, many large-scale.
In her artist’s statement, Gordon wrote, “My recent works focus more on my identity as a biracial woman and my body as a form…I feel more connected to my Korean roots and appearance…This has led me to create paintings focusing on the idea of accepting myself as an East Asian woman...There’s a conversation about intimacy in my work, expressing very secretive scenes through my pieces and allowing the viewer to peek into them.”
