Over The Bridge features over 20 artists from Fountain House Gallery working in
a variety of media. This exhibition is about relating to the world outside of ourselves – both the immediate and familiar as well as places outside of our comfort zone. This exhibition provides the artists an opportunity to venture outside of their familiar venue into a new location and showcase their work to a new audience.
On the receiving end, the community of Long Island City will have a unique opportunity to get an intimate view of the artists’ work. Fountain House Gallery (formerly Fountain Gallery) is the premier venue in New York City representing artists living and working with mental illness. Founded by Fountain House in 2000 as a not-for-profit exhibition space for its member-artists, the Gallery sells original artworks and collaborates with a wide network of artists, curators and cultural institutions. Embracing artists who are emerging or established, trained or self-taught, Fountain House Gallery cultivates artistic growth and makes a vital contribution to the New York arts community. www.fountaingallerynyc.com
