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.
