Man who paints goats

The Green Building puts on its first art show with a retrospective of "forehead painter" Jonathan Blum.

From December 3-January 14, the Gowanus space, presents “Rabbis, Goats and Other Characters: Paintings from Jonathan Blum’s First Decade in New York (1999-2009),” with an opening reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by an after-party, 9:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.

Blum is known in some circles as “the forehead painter,” because his early portraits captured his subjects only from the eyes up. He still focuses on faces but has expanded downward over the years.

The Green Building is a 4,000 square-foot yeshiva by day and party room by night located on the Gowanus Canal450 Union St. at Show hours are Sunday and Thursday, 12-6 p.m.; for more, call 917-855-6564.
