HVCCA’s Lust Is Part of Seven Deadly Sins Shows

Opens with reception April 19, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Seven Deadly Sins, a series of exhibitions on view from April through October, will be presented by seven arts institutions, all members of the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance (FWMA), located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, Westchester County and the Bronx: Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art; the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum; Bruce Museum; Hudson River Museum; Katonah Museum of Art; Neuberger Museum of Art; and Wave Hill.

Each of the FWMA institutions explores one of the Seven Deadly Sins: wrath, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride and sloth. The seven exhibitions aim to spark discourse on the nature of sin, penitence and virtue.

Peekskill’s HVCCA is participating with Seven Deadly Sins: LUST. The artists in Lust create artworks that visually explore raw eroticism in many forms of its expression. Artists include Amy Bennett, Giles Berquet, Ashley Bickerton, Larry Clark, George Condo, Beatrice Cussol, Tony Matelli, Bruce Nauman, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, Betty Tompkins, Emily Wardill and Entang Wiharso.

The opening reception takes place Sunday, April 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. at HVCCA, 1701 Main St. in Peekskill. For more information, visit hvcca.org or call 914-788-0100.
