9/11 Afterwards by Don Sexton
On exhibit September 1-30
Paintings en plein air of Ground Zero neighborhood during the weeks after September 11, 2001.
“In NYC I live in Tribeca, about ten blocks north of Ground Zero. For several weeks after the tragedy, i would put on my mask, pack up my inks and oil pastels, and carry my easel and sketchbooks to vantage points around the site. I painted en plein air the people gazing quietly and respectfully at the site. Some of these paintings have been shown individually but I have not shown them as a group until now – the twentieth anniversary of 9/11.”- Don Sexton
