What Can Art Do at ART 101
Curator Ellen Rand has gone to the studios of five Williamsburg gallerists and selected works that exemplify her exhibition thesis put forth in the press release as this quote, "The art historian Leo Steinberg once remarked that you can tell by looking at the work when an artist stops asking, "What can I do?" and starts asking "What can art do?" The five featured artists: Daniel Aycock and Kathleen Vance of The Front Room, Randall Harris of Figureworks, Todd Rosenbaum proprietor of The Hogar Collection, Richard Timperio Director of Sideshow, and Alun Williams of Parker's Box, have all spent extraordinary amounts of time and resources promoting the arts community, many times at the expense of their own work. This exhibition is a recognition of their contributions as well as their artistic merit.
