Join us to learn more about the Ash Can School, a small group of artists who sought to document everyday life in turn-of-the-century New York City, capturing it in realistic and unglamorized paintings and etchings of urban street scenes. Local author Robert Gambone highlights Jerome Myers, whose pioneering work places him in the forefront of contemporary realist artists. Myers’ focused concentration depicting the environment and inhabitants of New York City’s Lower East Side immigrant community allows us to understand these immigrant neighborhoods in a way that would not be possible today if his art did not exist. Speaker Robert Gambone is the author of Jerome Myers: The Ash Can Artist of the Lower East Side. Melanie Ebertz of ArtAndes hosts this program in her studio in the Northrup King Building.
