Beth Myrick – Spray paint transfers of animals on handmade wood-cuts
Jeff Sheridan –News media cartoonist, illustrative works on paper
Jeremy Okai-Davis – Figurative painter (ala Chuck Close), oil and acrylic on wood and canvas
John Kelting – Instinctual pop culture painter; acrylic works of icons on canvas
Joshua Abraham – Abstract architectural constructs; works on multi-media
Lea Barozzi – Designer/painter; fine figurative pop surreal paintings
Mark Zimmerman – Multi-media constructionist; working in collage and layered found imagery
Mike Suckocki – Glass works, sculptural and functional
Raithon Clay – Multi media abstract resin constructs
Robin Sandler – Pop art paintings; reminiscent of comics and advertising
Sam Roloff – Impressionist figurative and abstracts; works in oil on canvas and wood
Terra DeHart – Multi-media painter, edgy illustration and painterly abstraction
Thadeus Lutz – Sculptor; making musical instruments from solid steel axes and tools
Each artist has made 10 works for this show, presenting 13 mini-feature shows all together at once, all original “makers” of their craft, this Dozen is experimental, unique and singular in their each of their focused and individualistic artistic visions.
Poster Artist of the Month: John Vogl
Peoples Gallery features a nationally recognized poster artist each month.
This month’s featured artist is John Vogl.
John Vogl runs the Bungaloo, a small illustration and design outfit, all by his lonesome, from his sunny home in Denver, Colorado. All of his work is illustrated by hand, with love, care, and tears. His prints are an exploration if thoughts, deep and shallow, deliberate and spontaneous. He tends to work within a muted palate, giving my work an undefined aged/vintage feel, that, somehow, feels fresh at the same time.
Reception: Saturday, July 21st. 5-9pm.
Show runs July 21st – August 12th
