Our opening of Gregory Vernitsy’s show falls on the Fourth of July weekend. I have always welcomed this holiday as a tribute to the great American dream of Independence. This land attracted people from all over the world to join in this experiment and experience of human expression and freedom. As Britain votes to leave the EU and we hear calls to build walls here, let us affirm our belief in diversity and openness. Just as Santiago Gervasi from Peru recently graced our walls, and as we welcome Gregory from the Ukraine with his sculptures, remember Woody Guthrie's words: “This Land was made for you and me.”
Welcome to FOG on Monday, July 4th! Come celebrate our collective birthday.
