“Generations” Opens Friday May 12, 5-10PM, All Street NYC, 77 East 3rd st.
Please join us for the opening of “Generations” a two-person painting show with works by City Kitty and his grandfather John F. Servo (1921-2006). Friday, May 12, 5-10pm. All Street NYC, 77 East 3rd street, NYC.
This family’s legacy of NYC-based painters starts in the late 1940s, when John F. Servo finished his studies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, supported by the GI bill. He and his wife Betty Servo, also an artist and Pratt graduate, went on to use their creative skills with careers in advertising in NYC, before relocating to Florida. Two generations later, grandson City Kitty brought the family’s artistic tradition back to NYC. This show is curated by John F. Servo’s son and City Kitty’s father, John G. Servo. It features many of Servo’s later works, paired with the work of his grandson NYC street artist City Kitty, with cameo works from other artists in the family lineage.
On Saturday, May 13 at 12pm there will be a live recording of an episode of the podcast “Scratching the surface with City Kitty” at the gallery, where CK will be interviewing his father and curator of the show, John G. Servo. All are welcome.
The show will be on view Friday, May 12, 5-10pm; Saturday, 12-6pm; or Sunday, 12-5pm.
