NEW YORK CITY — Foun- tain Gallery, representing artists with mental illness, announces the solo exhibition “Into Central Park: Pho- tographs By Leonard Aschen- brand,” on view through Octo- ber 30.

Also included among the show’s 39 works is the darkly haunting “Armageddon,” Aschenbrand’s distinctly origi- nal take on Bethesda Fountain and its crowning angel, pho-
