CKRFA December, 2016 News Letter - Political Art Finally Arrives at Art Basel/Miami: None Too Soon

Five years ago this week, I opened my gallery with an exhibit of the fine and graphic art of Jerzy Janiszewski, whose Solidarity logo became the symbol of resistance to communist rule in Poland some 35 years ago. It was not a random choice: I wanted to provide artists in my own country with an example they could look to for inspiration and guidance should a climate of fear and repression ever threaten basic freedoms in this country. I never imagined the need for that example would come so soon.
