Waterfall Mansion & Gallery is honored to announce the exhibition, “BE STILL”, in which we have invited three internationally acclaimed artists whose works are rooted in stories of silence. In bringing this theme of silence to NYC’s contemporary art scene, this exhibition ex- plores the tension between the process driven “slow art” movement and the speed at which art and information are propagated. The se- lected artists embrace the idea of discovery in silence, which allowsthem to find truth, beauty, and rest. Widely recognized as a peaceful oasis in the bustling NYC area, Waterfall Mansion & Gallery is a fitting place to be still and reflect on your own internal power and fullness.
