While any work of art is an artist’s point of view, the works in this exhibition focus on that quality.  The pieces include interpretations of microscopic forms, expressive manipulations of unusual angles of vision, playful placements of figures whose points of view contrast with that of the artist and more abstract presentations of a visual experience.  Reflecting the broad range of artistic approaches, the literal positions taken include a range from precarious to stable, and the kind of details varies from carefully detailed to highly abstracted and expressive.  The exhibition includes prints, drawings, mixed media and paintings.

The original mission of the Blue Mountain Gallery was to show the work of strong representational painters and to stimulate the representational tradition of painting which was almost totally absent from New York’s commercial galleries in 1980. Over the years the mission of the cooperative gallery has grown to include both representational and abstract painters. Over the last 30 years, Blue Mountain Gallery has provided artists a gathering place of ideas where painters can communicate visually and verbally and find the support and inspiration of their peers as well as the art public. The Gallery’s longevity in the ever-changing and chaotic world of New York galleries is witness to its value.
