art.pushr visits The Proposition for a tour of their current exhibition featuring the work of Kadar Brock, Jason Gringler, & Jim Lee, and an exclusive interview with gallery director Ronald Sosinski.
We would like to thank Laurie Fendrich and Irving Sandler (friends and colleagues for many years) for choosing The Proposition and its sculptor Ben Bunch and painter Megan Burns (seen in the photo with Irving at the gallery) as the setting to accompany Laurie’s insightful and much deserved article on Irving’s illustrious career spanning a half a century of gallery going and relationships with artists.

The Local East Village interviews The Proposition Director Ronald Sosinski about the move to the Lower East Side. Read more below…or visit the link here. Ronald Sosinski, 62, is the director of The Proposition art gallery at 2 Extra Place and an East Village resident for more than 20 years. He and his business partner, Ellen Donahue, opened E.M. Donahue Gallery for Contemporary Art on East 11th Street between Avenues A and B in 1985 and followed the art scene to SoHo in 1987 and to Chelsea in 2002, where the space was renamed The Proposition. After more than 20 years away from the East Village, Mr. Sosinski and Ms. Donahue reopened the gallery on Extra Place (First Street just off of Bowery) in 2010. Mr. Sosinski discusses The Proposition’s current show and the gallery’s new location. NYU Journalism’s Mark Riffee reports.
