"A couple of small artist-run galleries are opening, too — Cate Holt’s Springs Projects in DUMBO, and JJ MURPHY GALLERY on the Lower East Side. JJ maintains @dagcentral, a beloved Instagram art review project, and he tells me that the gallery will open on Stanton Street in early February."  —  Two Coats of Paint

Barbara MacAdam on "An Extended Family of Painters," Brooklyn Rail (May, 2024):


“As an off-stage adjunct to the [Peter] Freeman exhibition, there is the enlightening show An Extended Family of Painters: Hermine Ford, Robert Moskowitz, Jack Tworkov, Janice Biala, and Daniel Brustlein, at JJ Murphy Gallery on Stanton Street. The Murphy show serves as a fascinating counterpoint to the one at Freeman’s, highlighting the work of Moskowitz’s wife Hermine Ford, and Ford’s father, the influential abstract painter Jack Tworkov, who was a close friend of Moskowitz’s. Together, this family provides a stunning overview of the range of painting being made in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.”
