Plansky and Friends” Gallery Exhibition Featured at the SAGG
The Sam & Adele Golden Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition entitled, ‘Carl Plansky and Friends’ opening on September 25, 2010 and running through November 20, 2010.  This exhibition celebrates the legacy of painter Carl Plansky, founder of Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors, as both artist and paintmaker.  Carl’s works are displayed along with those of a group of his fellow artist ‘Friends’.  The ‘Friends’ included in the exhibition are Pat Passlof, Milton Resnick, Jake Berthot, Susanna Coffey, Cora Cohen, Bill Jensen, Margrit Lewczuk, Judith Linhares, and Mary Jo Vath. These ‘Friends’, several of whom knew Carl for nearly thirty years, are from a much larger group of intimates that due to limits of space, regrettably, could not be represented.  This exhibition is dedicated to Carl Plansky and to all of his friends with whom he shared an artistic vision.  If you are unable to attend the show opening, you can view the artwork on through a virtual tour beginning on September 26, 2010.
