DISPATCH - SEPT 15, 2013

SPRINGS, NY-

When Vito Sisti passed unexpectantly in February 2013, the community came out to mourn his death and to remember his contributors as an unlikely curator and important part of the Springs art community. A reception at Ashawagh Hall followed his Memorial Service at the Springs Community Presbyterian Church, located directly across the street. It seemed only fitting that Sisti's Memorial was held in the hall where he spent time as an unlikely curator and attendee of art shows that were too many to count.

Last weekend, the Springs art community held another kind of memorial to Sisti--this time by mounting an art exhibition of artists whose work appeared in exhibitions he had  curated.

Following is a glimpse at some of the art and artists who turned out for one final "Vito Sisti Presents" show. All photos are by Tom Kochie.
