Alliance for Young Artists and Writers

FRONT Art Space, in collaboration with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, is pleased to present Now.After, bringing together an eclectic mix of literature and artwork. The exhibition features twelve artists and writers who received recognition as teenagers from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious scholarship programs for creative youths.

Now explores the work we're making now and our individual choices of medium, inspiration, vision and methodology from musings to textiles, photography to painting. After promises that this is the first installment of conjoined literary and visual exhibitions by alumni. While our individual creative practices will shift over time, our connection to Scholastic supports our growth through periodic, peer-produced, public presentations of our work.  

The breadth of the Scholastic Award alumni network includes Cy Twombly and Truman Capote, and adults in all industries from science to journalism to medicine to law to poetry, creative nonfiction and visual art. Now.After culls together the work of artists and writers for whom early recognition from Scholastic has encouraged sustained creative practices. We are pleased to share and instigate conversations across generations, languages and countries.
