There Is a There There Is not There

After a little over a month, the exhibition, There Is a There There, showing at the Gray Loft Gallery, closed yesterday and the work of over 60 artists has been removed. 

It was a show as varied as any show could possibly be with everything from fine art to camp (does any one use that word anymore?). It included paintings, photography, sculpture, furniture, video, conceptual art, fashion and  jewelry.

It was a pleasure meeting artists I'd never shown with before and re-connecting with artists I had. It was invigorating exchanging ideas and experiences with them and I will have great memories of the exhibition.

These were the artists in the show:

Steven Andresen      Rick Arnitz      Anne Austin      Jennifer Bain      Suzy Barnard      Susan Brady    Jamey Brzezinski      Becky Calandri      Betty Jo Costanzo      Betsy Davidson      Larry Davidson     Philip Dow      Tim Englert       Jan Erion      Olga Evanusa-Rowland      Susan Felter      Lorrie Fink      Shelley Gardner      Sonia Gill       Dari Gordon      Josh Greenberg       Ake Grunditz     Leslie Grunditz     Naomi Grunditz      Katie Hawkinson     Judith James      Betsy Kellas      Cay Lang       Carol Lefkowitz      Judy Levit      Lynn McGeever     Ethan McGuire       Henry McGuire    Jill McLennan      Alison McLennan     Dorie Meister       Susan Moyski       Julia Nelson-Gal    Jane Norling      Deborah O'Grady     Ellen Oppenheimer      Eben Ostby,      Susan Parish       Ginny Parsons,      Jude Pittman      Bruce Pizzichillo      Fernando Reyes      Jenny Sampson,        Susan Scott      Carol Lee Shanks       King Shrub      Simone Simon     Tracey Snelling      Amy Sollins,     Styrous,     Ed Ford Summerfield     Cuong Ta     Susan Tuttle     Christine Watten     Jan Watten     Tom White,    Stephanie Williamson    John Wood     Karyn Yandow,    June Yokell

My thanks to them and especially to Jan Watten for making this happen; 
without her there would not have been a there there.
