This event has ended.

“Midsummer Salon,” an exhibition of works by members of the Federation of Modern Painters & Sculptors, celebrates the traditions and concerns they share with the artists of Bowery Gallery in the gallery’s 50th year.

Both groups were founded by artists challenging conventions in tumultuous times. The Federation was founded in 1940 by Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Milton Avery, Meyer Schapiro and Ilya Bolotowsky, with the stated mission to “Promote the welfare of free progressive artists working in America; to strive to protect the artist’s general and cultural interests and to facilitate the showing of their work; and to take legitimate action in furtherance of such purpose.”
Embracing a diversity of styles, the Federation was created by artists for artists. Its current members include original Bowery member Lawrence Faden.
