Following a juried competition, the art of Jimmy Talarico has netted the architectural designer from CTA Bozeman another opportunity to display his work in the big city. In 2015, Talarico was selected for a show in Shanghai. Next week, it’s Brooklyn, New York. Out of 1163 submissions, 110 were selected by juror Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for inclusion in Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition‘s Black & White 2017. The show opens July 29, from 1-6 p.m. and runs through Aug. 20. Talarico and family will be in New York next weekend to attend the opening and explore the city.
The piece that got him in (shown at right) is called “I Don’t Know Why.” He describes it as “Thoughts on a struggle,” made by creating a wound in plaster: burning it, scraping it out, and setting it in time.
