The following guest post is by City-as-School intern Angelize Santiago

On view through October 23 at Fountain House Gallery is Heavy Sauce, a group exhibition featuring a diverse range of artworks by seven artists. Curated by Gerasimos Floratos, a local artist who has been attending Fountain House Gallery exhibits since his teens, Heavy Sauce presents several unique perceptions of our city — some created with acrylics and others with fabrics, collages and varied media. The image featured above, Times Square Day, was painted by Gary Peabody.  A few more images of featured artworks follow:

Founded in 2000, Fountain House Gallery showcases the works of artists living with emotional challenges, providing them with opportunities to share their creative expressions with others.
