Chiaroscuro: 
The arrangement of light and dark elements in a pictoral work of art

The exhibition Chiaroscuro expands the classical static definition by applying it to contemporary video, installation, and sculpture thus bringing this pictoral term into the realm of three and four dimensions. This show brings together thirteen artists whose work ranges from video installation, film projection, dense sculptural work, mixed media installation, vibrant abstract painting and sound based installation. Each artist experiments with a unique interpretation of this conventional theme thereby creating many diverse environments within the sprawling exhibition space at Smack Mellon Studios.
