Our Summer Invitational focuses on a broad range of contemporary portraiture. We will feature painters who contribute to making the Bushwick artistic community vibrant and active, many of whom we have shown at Life on Mars Gallery over the past two years.
The exhibition opens and coincides with Brooklyn Open Studios. Together with the many other fantastic spaces in Brooklyn, we will celebrate community, painting, and especially the artists who make Brooklyn the “painting capital of the world”.
Exhibiting Artists: Len Bellinger, Todd Bienvenu, Farrell Brickhouse, Deborah Brown, Avital Burg, Barbara Friedman, George Gilliland, Brenda Goodman, Catherine Haggerty, Clarity Haynes, Karen Heagle, Mary DeVincentis Herzog, Maxine Hess, Dana James, Elisa Jensen, Kharis Kennedy, Anki King, Kerry Law, Arnold Mesches, Mark Milroy, Garry Nichols, Dave Pollack, James Prez, Karen Schwartz, Edith Singer, Joyce Yamada.
