            A Celebration of Max Ferguson Benefitting STEPS to End Family Violence

The unveiling of a Max Ferguson painting was the center of a celebration at the Gallery Henoch on Wednesday, January 22nd. Dozens of supporters braved the icy weather to gather for the first look at a commissioned portrait donated by Ferguson to benefit the Edwin Gould Foundation Services for Families and Children.  The commission was sold at a live auction to highest bidder Stewart F. Lane, who chose to have the painting done of his twin sons. A portion of further proceeds from the exhibition at the Gallery Henoch will benefit the STEPS to End Family Violence, a NYC program at the at The Edwin Gould Foundation.

STEPS To End Family Violence is dedicated to empowering families and communities through innovative strength-based programs that promote healing and social change. The program is a progressive community organization that values justice and diversity. STEPS provides an array of services targeted to meet the needs of victims of gender-based violence: counseling, crisis intervention, advocacy, and legal services for adults, teens, and children; group counseling services in both English and Spanish; creative arts and movement groups and multiple family groups; community outreach and training to both service providers and community members; and alternatives to incarceration and batterers intervention programming.

Oil painter Max Ferguson is a graduate of NYU and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Ferguson has worked on a number of painting series over the years, including the New York City subway system, Coney Island, nocturnal imagery, paintings of his father and Jewish scenes. Ferguson's work has been widely exhibited since the 1980s, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The British Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and numerous other public and private collections.

In attendance were: Linda Argila, Stewart F. Lane, Bonnie Comley and their children: Leah Lane, Lenny Lane and Frankie Lane, Elie Hirschfeld and Sarah Schlesinger, Olga, Maria and Daria Balaeskoul, Julia and Jamal Nusseibeh, Cindy and Jay Gutterman, Lee Fryd, Marcia McCabe, Sawyer Avery, Alyssa Renzi, Arlene and Daniel Fisher, Ashley Argila and staff, friends and supporters of the Edwin Gould Foundation.
