Banksy, Basquiat on Display in Greenwich

From October 6 through November 3, Greenwich's Samuel Owen Gallery will host "On Every Street," an exhibition of over thirty street artists curated by Michael De Feo. The exhibit will include pieces from some of the burgeoning art form's most heralded names including the mysterious Brit Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Parisian stencil graffiti innovator Blek le Rat, "Space Invader" Don Leicht and Shepard Fairey, best know for his Obama "Hope" poster. De Feo, whose flower images have been a fixture on the covers of New York Magazine's "Reasons to Love New York City" issues, will also display his own work.

Banksy, the pseudonymous artist whose film Exit Through the Gift Shop snagged a 2011 Academy Award nom for Best Documentary, will likely be the biggest draw. He'll have four limited edition screen prints on display: Jack and Jill, Napalm, Pulp Fiction and Soup Can Green Red. The gallery hosts an opening reception on Thursday, October 6 from 6-9 p.m. and the exhibit will be open for viewing during gallery hours: Monday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Samuel Owen Gallery is located at 378 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich.
