Organized by the Estate of Syd Solomon. This exhibition is the first to examine the late painter, Syd Solomon’s work through the lens of his personal archive. Solomon once described himself as an “Abstract Impressionist.” A current cataloguing project of Solomon’s archives has revealed new information that he worked as a camoufleur (designer and implementer of military camouflage) during WWII. Solomon joins a coterie of artists whose wartime experience transformed their art. Free admission.

Public performances every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, plus Sunday, November 25. By F. Scott Fitzgerald. Adapted for the stage by Simon Levy. Directed by Joe Minutillo. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic Jazz Age novel, The Great Gatsby, depicts Jay Gatsby, a secretive and successful kingpin of the elite party circuit, whose one burning desire is to be with Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life from his youth. Set on Long Island in 1922, this compelling drama portrays the human condition of ambition, love, lust, greed, deceit, and the struggles of class and the American Dream.
