On Sunday, June 15, at 3 p.m., New Jersey artist Susanne Pitak Davis
and New York artist Mary Shelley will give a gallery talk at the Union
Square site about their work and about some of the adversity they
fact creating work that defies conventional definitions. Whether high
art, low art, folk art, or pop art, this work remains popular with
Davis is well known for her colorful sculptures and whimsical angels
embedded with found objects. Shelley creates carved, painted, and
gold-leafed narrative bas reliefs that immortalize such local features
as the Frenchtown Launderette or the Melrose Diner.
