I swung by Vermillion last night. The new show by Jason Puccinelli and Jed Dunkerley looks great! They painted the walls behind the paintings (never seen that at Vermillion before) and it really makes the art pop.
It's opening tomorrow night. Check it out. Vermillion openings are always fun and this should be especially rollicking.
"Puccinelli, working in impressively detailed large-scale oil canvases says, "These paintings make no attempt to illustrate the theories of my childhood. Instead they are visual representations of the epiphanies - the moments where I briefly understood my world." "
"Dunkerley paints gouache landscapes that represent a "fictitious world in which neither mysticism nor nature govern the world's phenomena, but rather the mechanisms and doings of engineers, carpenters, lab workers, and technicians in the employ of vast clandestine public utility corporations." "
Then swing by Grey Gallery & Lounge for Wayfare: Paintings by Joseph Arnegger and to see Emily Pothast's fantastic show, Eternal Return.
1/9/2009 -- Wayfare has been bumped back a week due to transportation problems caused by flooding.
