Art On The Waterfront

Art On The Waterfront

Fountain Gallery, the premier venue in New York City representing artists with mental illness, held a special event, “Art on the Waterfront,” on Saturday, July 31, 2010.

The event was hosted by Richard Demato and his wife, Harriet Sawyer, at their Sag Harbor home. Original artworks by Fountain Gallery artists were displayed for sale, with proceeds benefiting the Gallery. Renowned artists Eric Fischl and April Gornik were Honorary Chairs of the event.

The weather was sublime, and by the light of the setting sun and on into the evening, guests enjoyed cocktails, fine food, and live music as they viewed the original artworks strikingly arrayed on porches and lawns overlooking the bay.

Fountain Gallery, currently celebrating its 10th Anniversary year, was founded by Fountain House in 2000 as a not-for-profit exhibition space for artists living and working with mental illness.
