The calling card for “Painting: Now and Forever, Part II” is a swirling wood-blocked weave of painters’ names; representative of the bacchanalian spirit of “Painting: Now and Forever, Part I”, held a decade ago at Pat Hearn and Matthew Marks galleries.

Curators for Part II decided not to include anyone from the original cast, with the exception of Mary Heilmann, who has been with the Pat Hearn gallery since its beginning. Other 1998 Part I participants included Gary Hume, Elizabeth Murray, Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, Terry Winters, and countless more.
