Swinging Heart

March 18, 2014

For over a decade I have been on a one woman mission to re-establish our late friend, 'New York School' artist, Raymond Hendler (1923-1998) in the art world. The estate is now represented by Berry Campbell gallery in New York City. The gallery is featuring mid century work in a one man show, Raymond Hendler: Swinging Heart from March 20 - April 26, 2014.
