The Broeksmit Family Foundation, Inc. Donates Charitable Contributions From Artist Alla Broeksmit's Recent NYC Exhibition

Artist Alla Broeksmit donates a portion of the proceeds from her art exhibition to multiple charitable organizations through The Broeksmit Family Foundation, Inc. to honor the legacy of her late husband William Shaw Broeksmit.

​​Early this month Alla Broeksmit revealed her latest exhibition, Carnage, at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture. Carnage was created to illicit a visceral insight into the viewer’s socio-cultural surroundings, while exposing Broeksmit’s own unique emotional experience of the world. Presented in a subdued and seductive style and using various techniques and materials, Carnage invented a new dialogue between the artist’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

Alla Broeksmit draws from a pool of references found in her own personal life, in poetry and art history.  Utilizing vast and complex mediums, between paint and plaster, the figure is revealed through the process. Ranging in scale from postcard drawings, intimate paintings, large canvases, and mixed-media sculptural works, Alla Broeksmit’s examines the contemporary condition. She experiments with spatial relationships and the formal aspects of depth and color.

After successfully displaying and selling her works from this latest exhibition, Broeksmit announced that a portion of the proceeds from Carnage and her future shows will be donated to The Broeksmit Family Foundation, Inc. to be dispersed to various charitable foundations of the Broeksmit family’s choosing.
