Happy Paintings to Bring Mirth

Opening Reception:
Saturday, May 13th 6-9pm
with Special 9 Year Anniversary Events!

Closing Reception & Artist Talk:
Sunday, July 2nd 3-6pm (Talk starts at 4pm)

We are emerging from this exceedingly cold and rainy winter and the darkness of our current political regime with an invigorating painting show that celebrates the wild, free, gleeful, joyous!

If you love paintings and brilliant color, then this is the show for you! 

Bob Stang’s surreal architectural landscapes, expressive narratives by David Six, energetic layered formations by Ghost Ghost teeth, fresh impasto by John McNamara, bold graphic color by Ozzie Juarez, and celestial Art Deco figures by Shannon Taylor! These paintings will be sure to excite your senses! You can practically hear the paint application sing songs of chromatic delight!    

Featuring art by: Bob Stang, David Six, Ghost Ghost Teeth, John McNamara, Ozzie Juarez, Shannon Taylor
