Gitler &     has replaced the books (Pushcart Books) with Tom Sanford: 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, a solo exhibit from this Harlem-based artist.  Sanford has indeed been drinking for the past several months (a mere continuation), beginning this project on May 16th, and painted a ‘relic’ of each, then posting each finished painting on his @uberkunst Instagram account.

This relationship between the daily and familiar, in his case – enjoying a daily beer –  has been compared to Warhol’s daily lunch ritual, leading to his famed Campbell’s Soup Cans. He invites the public to his meditative space, enjoyment, pleasure, and as he puts it – “meant to depict a mini vacation in and of itself.” His “simple and singular moment of respite, rendered in acrylics….”

Presenting Tom Sanford: 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, on the heals of the gallery’s installation of Pushcart Books is, in the gallery’s words, “meant to embrace the ease (and hardships) of a summer in New York – when a good book and a cold beer can be the perfect indulgence.”

We rather like Summer at Gitler & ___, located at 3629 Broadway between 149/150th Streets in Hamilton Heights.  Opening Reception will be held on Wednesday, August 2nd from 6-9pm.  Tom Sanford: 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall will be on view to August 30, 2017.
