Gallery@ AGI Denim
548 W 28th St, #530, NYC 10001
gallery@ AGI Denim is pleased to announce the opening of Exquisite Blue Towers, an exhibition of collaborative artworks that celebrate indigo as a color by artists Holly E. Brown, Juan Manuel Gomez, and Mauro Arroyave. The show will run from July 22 to August 6, 2022, with an opening reception on July 21, 2022 at 6:30 PM in gallery@'s Chelsea NYC gallery, 548 W 28 St #530, New York, NY 10001.
The artworks use towers to connect three cities: Biella, New York, and Medellín. During the creation process, the artists were inspired by the Surrealist movement of the early 20th century. Techniques to be presented include drawing, painting, and printmaking with Officina+39 Recycrom™️ as a medium.
gallery@ is the art-celebrating arm of AGI Denim, a B Corp certified leader in Pakistan's denim industry. The mission of gallery@ is to champion working artists by providing gallery and logistics support, including space, materials, and marketing.
Henry Wong, gallery@'s Gallery Director, says "For this show, three artists who share our deep passion for denim were selected to exhibit. Holly E. Brown, Juan Manuel Gomez, and Mauro Arroyave have brought their unique styles into the collaborative statement entitled Exquisite Blue Towers. We are so excited to share this with the world."

Passionate about sustainability, Holly prints predominately on up cycled denim using inks derived from textile production waste. In addition, Holly is a Speedball Professional Relief Artist, teaches elementary art and printmaking workshops.
