Baker and Shelter Serra, will be available to discuss their work at a soft reception, which will be held at the gallery from 3-5pm on Saturday, April 29, 2017 – coinciding with the event date of Madison Avenue Gallery Walk.
As evidenced by the current and ever-shifting geo-political landscape, what is considered the establishment today can be adjusted tomorrow, and the status quo, quickly reversed. The only thing certain about a norm is its changeability, a universal law from which the trends in the art world is not exempt.
True Grit, a feast for the eyes, showcases 14 paintings and 6 sculptures created by six individual American artists, born in different decades, and using very different art practices. Their point of commonality is a demonstrated refusal, throughout their decades of practice, to compromise their artistic visions, in spite of the mainstream, and its ever-changing face. True Grit is an exploration into the introspective processes of six unique individuals, who create, and have always created, on their own terms, and a celebration of the resultant dynamic works.
On view include: R.C. Baker’s “After Krivov, Rockefellers, and Warhol”; Ron Gorchov’s “Sam”; Michael McClard’s “Shooter, Got Shot”; Yooah Park’s “Holarchy Clouds”; Shelter Serra’s “Red Lawnmower and Wildflowers”; and Lawrence Weiner’s “Put Aside or Put Away.”
