Shine a Light When It’s Gray Out by Stephen Wilson

Fine artist Stephen Wilson is debuting his newest series Shine a Light When It’s Gray Out at the New Gallery of Modern Art from Feb. 28 - Mar. 2, 2018. The exhibition will also serve as a book signing for the release of Wilson’s first cohesive art book. This will be the series' first stop on a tour across the US including shows in Los Angeles and Palm Beach among others.

Central to Shine A Light are Wilson’s signature creations - hundreds of butterflies composed of as many as 100,000 embroidered stitches each. The stark contrast of their flight against dark canvas speaks to his message of finding inspiration and communal interconnectedness during society’s darkest hours.
