July 25, 1972: Another highlight in the summer activities of The Brooklyn Museum’s popular Community Gallery is the “SIX PAINTERS" exhibition which opens on Sunday, August 6, and runs through August 27. Other shows in the Gallery’s summer series were “Native North American Art”, comprised of contemporary works by American Indian artists, and the 1971 Annual Fence Show Winners.
Featuring the works of a group of six young artists of diverse backgrounds and stylistic preferences, the show is designed to create an awareness of the variety of expressions in contemporary art. Participating artists are: Dale Chisman, Vann Hilty, Kenneth Jordan, James Perigord, Justin Schorr (Teachers College faculty, Columbia University), and Jerry Zeniuk.
Approaching its fourth anniversary, under the direction of Henri Ghent, the Community Gallery has presented more than fifty (50) exhibitions, involving more than 1500 artists, that have been notable for their variety of expression and for the quality they revealed.
“SIX PAINTERS”, like all exhibitions presented in the Gallery during the 1971-72 season, is made possible through grants from the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Visual Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
