Fountain House Gallery Presents “Artists Looking at Art” at Fountain House Gallery Fountain House Gallery presents its newest exhibition: Artists Looking at Art curated by Joyce Siegel, Director of Joyce’s Art Walk, and Jonathan Rider, Associate Director at The FLAG Art Foundation. Original artwork from nearly 40 artists is on display at this exhibition, which runs through April 8, 2020 at 702 9th Avenue in New York City. The gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Artists Looking at Art brings together nearly 40 contemporary artists who source inspiration—whether directly or abstractly—from other artists’ work. For this exhibition, Fountain House Gallery artists were asked to submit an original artwork whose point of departure was an existing piece or another artist’s style. Inspirations ranged from historical figures, including Margaret Keane, Kazimir Malevich, and Vincent van Gogh, to comic book illustrators, graffiti artists, and friends.

The exhibition is curated by Joyce Siegel, artist, arts educator, and Director of Joyce's Art Walk; and Jonathan Rider, artist, curator, and Associate Director of The FLAG Art Foundation. The curators stated, “We were impressed by how this community of artists interpreted our prompt. We received so many submissions in an array of media—drawings, paintings, photographs, fiber works, sculptural objects, and more—and it was amazing to see how artists varied their approaches to color, composition, and subject matter."

This program is funded, in part, by generous support from the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the David Rockefeller Fund, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
