We'll be missing you ... George

Last night, peacefully around 11 p.m. George Monusky our dear friend and partner passed on. After a valiant 4 year struggle with MSA he left this world last night. After surviving the first World Trade Center bombing (he worked for Morgan Stanley) and then moving to rural NH with Mary Jo and surviving without the big city, George added pizazz to our lives here in Rochester. He showed us the good life, sharing his love of sushi with daughter Chloe, patching and painting the gallery between shows, lending a well informed opinion on how to get the building renovated for being a gallery and actually help with coming up with our name, artstream.
Life will be a little less vibrant, a little less passionate without George. His New Yorker attitude (and accent!), love of all that is full in life and his ability of finding the good in everyone attitude hallmarked his being. He will always live on in our hearts and memories.
