"WHITE OUT" is a group show featuring 24 of the many artists affiliated with Cross Contemporary Art during its 2 and a half years in Saugerties, NY. The exhibit focuses on various expressions and experiences of “white” in the Visual Arts: from the depiction of white as a pigment, to the definition of white space by form, to the blending of all bands of light to create white wavelengths and finally the understanding of white as the absence of all marks or pigment. White can also be understood as a narrative or a fact (like snow, water or ice), but ultimately white will always remain the expression of all light.
"WHITE OUT" is curated by Jen Dragon and Alan Goolman.

The Animal Nature and the Psyche - The Art of Jan Harrison


As part of our blog series dedicated to lost and endangered species in the lead-up to Remembrance Day for Lost Species, ONCA delves into the otherworldy work of New York-based artist Jan Harrison. The words are Jan’s own as she describes the work. Dive in, and drift a while through the more-than-human psyche…

ONCA’s mission is to cultivate environmental and social wellbeing through the arts. We aim in all our activity to inspire creativity and positive action in the face of environmental change, and to help galvanise the creation of a critical mass of work that responds to and explores these changes.
