My friends Barry Hoggard and James Wagner too have put together this upcoming show which is opening next Friday:
Williamsburg / Greenpoint
38 Marcy Avenue
October 13 - November 13, 2006
Opening: Friday, October 13, 7:00PM - 9:00PM
"The art world of today appears to be dangling between the real thing and the superficial. Barry Hoggard and James Wagner, the curators of this show, have invited a small diverse group of artists whose work is about what they think and feel, and whose artistic vision is not bent toward what they think the market wants this month or this year. This approach was rewarded in their experience working with Susan Dessel during the months she was creating the work installed weeks ago in the gallery's rear garden, when the pair become keenly aware of the difference between what the artist does and what is accomplished by someone who is only concerned with the surface of things."
