NEW YORK, NY.- Waterhouse & Dodd presents an exhibition benefitting the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which has supported the fight against Parkinson’s so dynamically since 2000 by raising over $450 million. A portion of all sales from the exhibition will contribute to the Foundation. Paintings, drawings and photographs of 5 artists represented by Waterhouse & Dodd are being featured. Two of these artists – Tom Shannon and Jay Zukerkorn – have Parkinson's.

Jay Zukerkorn was diagnosed in 2004. Born in Hawaii, Zukerkorn has been a successful commercial photographer for 25 years and Waterhouse & Dodd is the first gallery to showcase his fine art endeavors. Zukerkorn’s first series Movement Disorder began as a response to his initial diagnosis, as he accentuated his condition by deliberately blurring the images in bright, colorful beach scenes. In his new series, The Road I Am On, the photographs appear abstract, highlighting the contrast between dark pavements and bright, crackled paint. The series is another leg of his journey through artistic reinvention and rediscovery.

Tom Shannon is an internationally renowned artist, working in a variety of mediums since 1967. His work is in the collections of many museums including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris and The Tate Gallery, London. His famous ‘Ted Talk' in 2009 was filmed in his New York studio when he created two of the works that will be exhibited in this show. Shannon's art is inspired by science and is endlessly inventive. Shannon is an inventor, holding a number of patents, and his art is inspired by science and the forces of nature. The onset of Parkinson's intersects in his life and craft. View his 2009 TED Talk, “The Painter and the Pendulum.”

Work by gallery artists Doug Argue, Karen Gunderson, Xavier Guardans, Nick Veasey and Kim Keever also are featured.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensure the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. A portion of sales resulting from the exhibition will be donated to support research for the treatment and cure of Parkinson’s disease.

Works in the exhibition are available for viewing online.
