These paintings can be seen as allegories of shared vulnerability, especially pronounced in this time of economic uncertainty. The people in these pictures both help and harm each other; they struggle, fear, and hope together.

"I see in Dale William's paintings a struggle of one where human emotion is in danger of losing its felt relationship to the world," Gallery Dirctor Tim Ross said. "This empathy calls to question our connection with people. The figures call to us with their personal wishes and misfortune."

The reception will run from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The exhibit will be on display until December 7, 2012.

Dale Williams received his BFA degree from Cooper Union, New York City in 1977. He then went on to travel throughout Europe and India; always learning more for his art. He then attended Hunter College graduate art program and received an MFA in 1989. From 1999 until 2004 Williams worked with a few other artists in running an annual artists open studio tour in the Gowanus Canal area of Brooklyn where he currently has his own studio. This will be the second time Dale Williams brings his art to Manhattanville College, the first being in 2007.
