Fountain House Gallery Presents “Small Works: $100 & Under”
On view: October 31 – December 20, 2019
Reception: October 31, 6-8 p.m.
NEW YORK CITY – Fountain House Gallery, located at 702 Ninth Avenue and representing artists living with mental illness, announces the upcoming show Small Works: $100 & Under. The exhibition, an annual Gallery event, will open with a Reception on October 31, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and will remain on view through December 20, 2019.
Fountain House Gallery Director Ariel Willmott said, “Each year I am surprised by the fantastic variety in the artwork created for the Small Works exhibition. The artists continue to embrace the scaled-down format, unleashing their talents on fresh mediums and ideas. The exhibit showcases mini-collections of artworks, giving viewers a unique opportunity to experience individual artists' breadth of work. And we love offering the pieces at a price point that everyone, from tourists and students to artists and collectors, can afford.”
For the 2019 Small Works show, the artists of Fountain House Gallery have created more than 400 pieces sized at 6 by 6 inches or less, which can be purchased “off the wall” and fit conveniently in a tote bag or briefcase. Among the mediums represented are collage, mixed media, acrylic and watercolor painting, digital art, and photography. Past Fountain House Gallery Small Works shows have been a rousing success with holiday shoppers and collectors.
This program is funded, in part, by generous support from the Hearst Foundation, Inc., the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the David Rockefeller Fund, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
