Brooklyn, NY -- Come in where it is cool and take the plunge, literally and figuratively! 440 Gallery is pleased to present Everyone in the Pool, a group show of diverse artwork from each of its fourteen members. Ours is an artistic gene pool where ideas meet, hybridize, evolve, and powerful synergies constantly occur. As a collective we are in this together, sink or swim. This exhibit expresses this theme through "conversations" among the artwork while celebrating the summer season through paintings, photography, sculpture and video.
This is a rare opportunity to contemplate together the works of all of our members: Vicki Behm, Fred Bendheim, Tom Bovo, Ellen Chuse, Shanee Epstein, Gail Flanery, Jay Friedenberg, Laurie Lee-Georgescu, Karen Gibbons, Susan Greenstein, Katharine Colona Hopkins, Nancy Lunsford, Amy Williams, Ella Yang.
Everyone in the Pool opens at the 440 Gallery located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Brooklyn, on Thursday, August 1, and will run through Sunday, September 8, 2013. There will be a reception for the artists from 6:00-9:00 PM, Thursday, August 1.
440 Gallery was named "Best Gallery" by The L Magazine in their February 27, 2013, issue featuring The Best Stores in Brooklyn. More recently, 440 Gallery and Shanee Epstein's solo exhibition were reviewed by Art in Limbo in their series on Brooklyn galleries.
The 440 Gallery is in Park Slope, convenient to the F, M, and R subways. The gallery is open Thursday and Friday, 4:00 - 7:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM, or by appointment. Check the gallery's website, www.440gallery.com , for more information.
