Fountain House Gallery, New York

until February 19, 2020

The group show "We See You" features original photographs that express and illustrate what Fountain House, Fountain House Gallery, and the surrounding neighborhood means to its members.

This exhibition presents a slice of the Fountain House milieu, and the mental health community at large, as seen through hundreds of photographs by more than 35 Fountain House Gallery artists. Curated in a purely democratic manner, the installation will play with the CMYK color model (the building block for every color print) to illuminate the accessibility and spontaneity of the work.

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, acquired 23 artworks, by gift and gift/purchase, from Gordon W. Bailey, a Los Angeles-based collector. Bailey is a noted scholar and advocate of untrained Southern artists, particularly African-American, who struggled during the Jim Crow era. “Gordon W. Bailey’s generous gifts are a welcome addition to our collection,” said Rod Bigelow, Crystal Bridges executive director and chief diversity and inclusion officer. “We’re grateful to be able to highlight and celebrate this array of inspiring works, primarily by African American artists, who have made important contributions to the American art historical canon.” Highlights from Bailey’s group of works include: Dr. Crow, a painting on sheet metal by South Carolina artist Sam Doyle, whose works chronicled America’s unique Gullah culture, and were collected by Jean-Michel Basquiat; Cocaine Dog, a stirring, mixed media, metal sculpture by Thornton Dial, Sr.; a poignant, 1950s, oil on board, Baptism, by Clementine Hunter; a six-foot tall, carved and painted, tree stump, Tree of Death, by Herbert Singleton, whose bas-relief works often address human frailty and hypocrisy; and several, outstanding, large-scale works by Purvis Young painted on wood panels reclaimed from cast-off shipping crates, and a 53-page book of Young’s mixed media works.
