A RARE OPORTUNITY TO SEE WORKS BY TWO WELL KNOWN ARTISTS FROM BERLIN GERMANY
INVITATIONCARD

ABOUT CLAYTON GALLERY: "I decided to open a gallery that would allow me to show the work of artists who I found interesting, professional and were outside the system. Peoplke who worked from an inner voice and a necessity, not for market values. I did hope that it might serve as a springboard for artists to be able to make the jump to a commercial gallery with more economically established and hence had more "merit." I also took pictures of community people, mostly Hispanic youths, and in 1985 I started putting thirty six of these pictures in the window, changing them roughly every two weeks. It was the most viewed window photo exhibit in New York City. Twenty four hours a day kids said "Mira, mira!" and tapped on the glass. My window mural was known locally as The Hall of Fame. It was great. We also allowed our large metal front door that was the backdrop for the photos being exhibited to be used as The Wall of Fame. The door became a graffiti tag spot where all kinds of local tags found a place. It was because of those 36 photographs in the window I decided that opening a gallery and showing what / wanted to show was a good idea. While not a big money maker, it was a way to try to influence the world, how people think and what they see.  linkGET MORE INFORMATION
