New York, NY – September 14, 2012 – Fountain Gallery, located at 702 Ninth Avenue and representing artists with mental illness, today announced the upcoming opening of On Paper: Drawings, Collages and Watercolors. This group exhibition of works on paper will be on view from September 20 through November 14, 2012, with an Opening Reception on Thursday, September 20, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The exhibition features more than 30 works by Fountain Gallery artists and includes pieces by five artists whose work is being presented posthumously: bold and intricate pen and ink drawings by Anthony Ballard (1945-2008); the colored-pencil fashion illustrations of Gary Brent Hilsen (1954-2011), whose 2010 solo show of paintings at Fountain Gallery was a smash with collectors; free-form “creatures” in oil pastel by self-taught visionary artist Glenn Moosnick (1969-2004); mixed media pieces by Dick Lubinsky (1933 -2001), whose work attracted extensive media attention at the 2009-2010 exhibition Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore; and fanciful, figurative watercolor and pen and ink works by Susan Robinson (1931-2010).
Also on view in On Paper are works by: David Alonzo, Lorrie Berman, Elizabeth Borisov, Martin Cohen, Carleton Cordier, Ann Fischman, Jonathan Glass, Paula Isaac, Anna Kuchinsky, Anthony Newton, Keith Pavia, Gail Shamchenko, and Deborah Standard.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by generous support from The Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation and The Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust.
