5×7 Exhibition Continues at the Arthouse through June 12th

5 x 7 Show 2011

The 5×7 show at the Arthouse is open through June 12th, sooooo you still have a shot at picking up some wonderful small art.

I did not end up going to the ArtSplurge (the first night opening when the art is initially revealed and available for sale), but the Art Social on the second night was great! There was pizza and beer, good live music and lots of friends, and a gazillion wonderful 5×7 paintings and sculptures!

The renovations at the Arthouse are excellent, allowing for much more exhibition space. The beauty of the old building has been preserved while also injecting some gorgeous contemporary design elements. I really love the modern variation of glass block windows.

There were several art pieces in protest of the firing of the Arthouse’s curator (see previous post for more on that story).   Here are a few of the protest pieces I saw:

And see some of the gorgeous art on that’s still on view at the Arthouse here (my two paintings are among this group of pictures; can you find them?):  Art Openings: 5×7 Show 2011 – The Art.

For one thing, I want gesture-any kind of gesture, all kinds of gesture–gentle or brutal, joyous or tragic; the gesture of space soaring, sinking, streaming, whirling; the gestures of light flowing or spurting through color. I see everything as possessing or possessed by gesture. I’ve often thought of my paintings as having an axis around which everything revolves.
