Unfortunately, due to the weather, the park show will be postponed. There’s a smaller show happening in BK, for those who are in town… so go show some support! It's a Free show but donations are welcomed. Proceeds will go to Ray's Candy store… as well. Info is on the flyer. We're all bummed but the park tradition will continue. New date coming soon! Thanks!

Bill Rice's paintings ... are glimpses of East Village life — the old East Village of crime, abandonment, and cruising, of obscure figures with good muscle tone, surreptitious oral favors in the parks and alleys, stoop-front sales, and hanging out. His surfaces are slowly built up from thin layers of oil paint with an occasional putty-like vector or a colored stripe or, at times, a skeletal architecture or diamond-shaped fence pattern. Looking at his works we are moving constantly, roving, scanning the neighborhood where he had lived since 1953, when rent controls were still in place and you could get by on a few welfare checks and some decent luck.
Rice lived on East Third Street for more than 50 years and opened a gallery there in the 1980s.
