15 with "American Vernacular," a two-part exhibition
featuring "Paintings in American Verse" by Alexander
Echo and "Snapshots from the American Dream," which
are found photographs from the gallery’s collection.
Among the collection of mostly black-and-white prints and Polaroids
taken during the last century in "Snapshots" is a 1960
gelatin silver print, "Two Tone" (pictured), of a gleaming
Echo, who maintains his studio in DUMBO, incorporates the words
of Walt Whitman, Malcolm X, Black Elk, James Baldwin, Robert
Frost and others into his oil paintings.
"American Vernacular" is on display through Dec. 18.
