Capturing the lives of bustling commuters

Getting Around: City Transportation Images, is the new show at the Object Image Gallery, captures both the hustle and bustle of city life as well as the occasional solitary relationship New Yorkers have with their modes of travel.

Published artist/illustrator Stephen Gardner’s quick sketches of subway riders reveal an insight into the private moments of these commuters. Roman Scott’s watercolors are filled with the color and “noise’ of New York taxis patrolling the streets. Nationally renowned and master printmakers Karen Whitman and Richard Pantell present etchings and linocuts that create a wide range of moods and views of our subways and streets.

Jo Pendola’s paintings can elevate the tunnels of the subway to the places of mythic journeys. Jeff Faerber’s observant eye and skillful hand are evident in his paintings. Getting Around also includes the work of Thomas Hagen, Laura Fantini, Robert Weiss, Warren Beishir and Simon Carr..

The show runs September 12-October 5 with an opening reception September 12, 5-8 p.m. Regular gallery hours are Thursday & Friday, 4-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 12-5 p.m. at the Gallery, 91 Fifth Avenue between Prospect and Park places in Brooklyn.
