Artists Vital to the Expression of Human and National Consciousness Arrive on Scene

Share Article

Important, original, contemporary art that addresses politics, spirit, beauty and terror.

Artists, shamans, thinkers and bons-vivants William P. McDougal and Michael D. Petrovich are now exhibited on

Exhibited individually, some of their works are beautiful. Some are troubling. Yet others are deeply mysterious. There are many images here that foment visceral reactions based on all the above criteria.

To be sure, this work is not decorative.

At the same time, some pieces here express great tenderness. The paintings, photos and other imagery are deeply personal recordings of what each of these gentlemen has witnessed as a homo sapiens sapiens. For each of these men, this work expresses, in individual ways, what it means to be a human being and furthermore, what it means to be alive and experiencing this material plane.

Mr. McDougal has been producing art for almost the entirety of his life. His high-schooling occurred at Christ School in Arden, North Carolina. He attended and graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 1990. His post collegiate art-instruction includes courses taken at The New School, Parsons School of Design and The Art Student's League. He has shown in galleries in New York such as LaMaMa LaGalleria and theMikePGallery. He has also exhibited in Charleston, S.C. and in different places throughout western Massachusetts.

Mr. Petrovich has been living on the fringes of society for the past 10 years doing such things as master art-handler for all the fine artists and galleries in the New York City metropolitan areas. He has worked at or for nearly every large Art museum in New York as well as Miami and Los Angelos. He became very tired of moving other peoples artwork around and decided after the 9/11 accident to go into real estate. He has yet to get rich in this profession but has held licenses in New York as well as presently California. He has traveled all over the world and is planning a trip to the Caribbean very soon. He loves to paint to find out "where my head is at." He loves to use children's tempera paint and pours it generously all over his canvases.

There is something here for nearly every observer.

It's free to look and reasonable to purchase.

As always, "We give you very good price!"
