The 20th Anniversary Exhibition is a celebration of not only the resilience of the artists who live with mental illness but also a reflection on a city and people that have prospered through multiple crises.
Original photographs that express and illustrate what Fountain House, Fountain House Gallery, and the surrounding neighborhood means to its members. Curated by Frank Maresca.
For this annual exhibition, on view through December 20, the artists of Fountain House Gallery created more than 400 pieces sized at 6 by 6 inches or less.
For this show, Fountain House Gallery artists were presented with a quotation by the artist Lee Lozano (1930–1999) as a starting point for a discussion about the physical, psychological, and sociological nature of New York City.
Artist Jonathan Glass has been a fixture of New York City jazz clubs for nearly two decades. Pen and ink in hand, he uses his vigorous line to portray a jazz show as it unfolds, capturing the rhythmic energy of the music as well as the distinctive persona of each performer.
For this show at Fountain House Gallery, "We asked the artists to inhabit the role of flâneur themselves, reflecting on the bustle and diversity of city life as only artists can.”
