Ross+Kramer Gallery Exhibition to Benefit Project Sunshine
Ross + Kramer Gallery will be donating a portion of proceeds from a new exhibition to Project Sunshine.
Ross + Kramer Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of How ‘Bout Them Apples, a group exhibition with works by Nina Chanel Abney, Trey Abdella, Ana Benaroya, Jonathan Chapline, Julie Curtiss, Timothy Curtis, Todd James, Ludovic
Nkoth, Eddie Martinez, John Rivas, Koichi Sato, Anna Park, Erik Parker, and David “Mr. Star City” White—all New York-based artists. This is the inaugural show in the gallery’s new location at 515 W 27th Street in Chelsea.
The phrase “How ‘Bout Them Apples?” is a brassy declaration of one-upmanship made familiar by the 1997 film Good Will Hunting. Here it speaks to the resilience and toughness of the artists whose work is featured in this exhibition, New Yorkers
who persevered through one of the city’s most trying periods. By opening a new gallery space, albeit carefully, with an ambitious group show during a pandemic, the show hopes to communicate that while things may not be the same as
always, the spirit of New York endures, especially through the artists who create within its borders. The gallery will be presenting fourteen new works that embody the vibrancy of the city itself, the Big Apple.
This inaugural exhibition celebrates the work of these fourteen artists while also giving back to our city and those affected by the pandemic. The gallery will be giving 10% of the proceeds from this exhibition to Project Sunshine, an international
nonprofit, harnessing the power of play and human connection to help children facing medical challenges.
How ‘Bout Them Apples will run from September 17 until October 31. Ross + Kramer Gallery is open to the public Tuesday-Saturday, 11-6pm or by appointment. Please follow CDC recommended guidelines when visiting, including wearing a facial covering and social distancing, in order to keep our visitors and staff safe. This exhibition will run concurrent with a solo exhibition by Marcela Flórido in the gallery’s East Hampton location.
