Ab – Ex is a group show I’m curating at Brews, the new café/pub that recently opened at 2 Pine St.
Ken Addington, Paula Jones, John Willer, Adrian Frost, Mary Schafer, Chris Fischer, Drew Gentle, Marvin Jonason, John Stalling and myself have each contributed an abstract expressionist work for the the show.
It’s been 25 years since staring down a blank canvas, and it was an intimidating and humbling challenge to create something for this show. I was way out of my comfort zone and battled the urge not to glue found objects onto the canvas.
The result is titled “Whole” and it hangs without judgment, next to many of the painters I hold in high regard.
Opening reception is this Saturday, Nov. 8th from 6 til 9 p.m. and is part of the Eureka Springs Second Saturday Gallery Stroll. It’s also a chance to check out the recently revived Satori Arts, the new location of the Eureka Fine Art Gallery and the brand new X gallery – all located at Eureka’s new gallery row across from the Eureka Springs post office.
