"The Window: John Ahearn"
January 12 - February 7 1980
(Inauguration of the Window Showcase Series)
“John Ahearn takes molds of heads of his audience/volunteers, casts them in plaster and then carves and paints them to emphasize outrageous and poignant expressions and poses. His methods, subjects and manipulations emphasize an immediacy and directness based on sociology as well as art.”
