My frequent collaborator, New York City artist Dale Williams, has a new solo show at the Gowanus Loft (61 9th Street, Brooklyn)

The title pays homage to jazz drummer Max Roach’s groundbreaking 1960 recording We Insist! – Freedom Now Suite.

Like Roach’s creation, the exhibition consists of five parts, each offering new perspectives on American history. There are three large new paintings and two new sets of drawings.

Below is the monumental (11’ by 57’) work entitled A Panoramic Fantasia of American History Centered on the Untimely Death of Robert F. Kennedy:
