Oh Say Can You See? EMIGRE ARTISTS IN AMERICA

Many of our greatest "American" artists were, in fact, naturalized Americans born abroad. Some, like Mark Rothko and Louise Nevelson, came as children and were trained in the United States. Others, like Hans Hoffman, Willem de Kooning and David Hockney, came as adults, seeking refuge or creative freedom in the United States. All made major contributions to our "American" culture, as do many foreign-born visual artists today. 

We have no way of knowing how many great artists perished in Europe during World War II because our Govrenment refused to let them enter the United States, due to their religion or country of origin.

And if the Trump Administration's Travel Ban takes full effect---denying entry to all Muslims, or all Muslims from certain countries in the "watered down" version---we'll never know what they might have contributed to our culture, either.

Nancy Ohanian's political illustrations cut through the clutter, the noise, the hype and the fog. She portrays Donald Trump as he is: reckless, unprepared, greedy and power-hungry. Notice how, in this illustration, he has the GOP wrapped around his little finger. OPENING Friday, 17 March, 2017

THE AGE OF ACQUIRE'US?

This exhibit is one gallery's response to the US intelligence community's finding that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his country's military intelligence and cyber warfare services to carry out a largely successful psychological cyber warfare operation (psyop) beginning early in 2016 for the purpose of undermining the credibility of the recent presidential election and later in support of Donald Trump's campaign to become the 45th President of the United States.

The Age of Acquire'us exhibit is presented as a reminder, and warning, that history is littered with authoritarian rulers---Peron in Argentina, Stalin in the Soviet Union and Ghadafi in Libya, to name just a few---who, once in power, felt the need to silence their critics as an act of revenge---or out of fear of popular revolt. By presenting works of propaganda art and "Non-conformist" art permitted and banned, respectively, by the Soviet Union's communist government over half a century, alongside political art created by American artists that would almost certainly be banned if President Trump were to act on some of the threats he made during the campaign, the exhibit hopes to alert Americans to the risks and dangers that could lie ahead.
