On view: October 31-December 20, 2019
Small Works: $100 & Under is an annual Fountain House Gallery exhibition event. For this year’s show, Gallery artists have created more than 500 original pieces. Each original work is sized 6 by 6 inches or less and is priced at $100 or under. 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.
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.”
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.
About Fountain House Gallery: Fountain House Gallery and Studio provides an environment where artists living with mental illness can express their creative visions and exhibit their work. Founded by Fountain House in 2000, the storefront Gallery in Manhattan sells original artworks and collaborates with a wide network of artists, curators and cultural institutions. The Studio, located in Long Island City, is a collaborative workspace that furthers the professional practice of our artists. Embracing artists who are emerging or established, trained or self-taught, Fountain House Gallery cultivates artistic growth, makes a vital contribution to the New York arts community, and challenges the stigma surrounding mental illness.
All Fountain House Gallery artists are members of Fountain House, founded in New York City in 1948 with the belief that people living with mental illness can be active participants in their own and each other’s recovery. Over the past seven decades, Fountain House has inspired the creation of hundreds of similar programs in 32 states and 34 countries that serve more than 100,000 people annually.
