Fountain House Gallery, located at 702 Ninth Avenue in Manhattan and representing artists living with mental illness, announces its first exhibition of 2018: Fountain House Studio Inaugural Show. The exhibit features works made by Resident Artists at Fountain House Studio in Long Island City during its first year of operation.

“The realization of Fountain House Studio enables Fountain House Gallery member- artists to move to a new level of creativity in their work,” said Ariel Willmott, Director of Fountain House Gallery. “Free of the constraints of making art in their living spaces, artists ranging in experience from highly trained to self-taught can work on a larger scale and explore fresh directions in a collaborative, supportive setting. In addition to the 14 Resident Artists exhibiting in Fountain House Studio Inaugural Show, dozens more Gallery artists and other Fountain House members have made art at the Studio during its first year, and our community continues to grow.”

Fountain House Studio Inaugural Show showcases works in mediums including acrylic, collage and mixed media. The exhibiting artists are: L.B. Berman, Martin Cohen, Bernadette Corcoran, Stephanie Freader, Ashwood Kavanna, A. Lutz, Anthony Newton, Julie Orton, Angela Rogers, Barry Senft, Susan Spangenberg, Robin Taylor, Alyson Vega, and Boo Lynn Walsh.

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