Oxbow   Delirious Dreaming Pugilist and Other Stories Klara Glosova

Closing Reception: Saturday, July 14, 6 – 9pm

“The cornerstone of this project is a small print of a brick wrapped in brown butcher paper and named “Pugilist”. In fact, picture two bricks. The two main characters-the stars of the show-are a pair of bricks, one for each hand. They are not particularly stunning, monumental or impressive in their presence, nevertheless their weight is considerable – they can be used as a support or to hold things down, to break through or to build with. With these qualities in mind I want to build a new narrative for what it means to be a woman fighter.” -Klara Glosova

Fogue Studios & Gallery –   50 Artists Over 50

We are taking a flag, planting it firmly into the culture of the radical and initiating the act of awesome aging. We are not just a bunch of old fogeys rocking our chairs, we are the FOGUES rocking the art world!

studio e   presents Ken Kelly, who has been exhibiting work since 1983, and is stepping to the fore with a new body of work, boldly painting abstract shapes and patterns extended on a vast scale – in dimensions of 144″ or more. His surprising color combinations set off interacting regions of space, chunks of color that reverberate among themselves and with the environment beyond the canvas.  Accompanying these are smaller pieces thickly painted and layered, contrasting static shapes with streaks of movement.

Nupasa Gallery features new paintings by John Ohannesian.

Equinox Studios  is a growing arts community in sunny West Georgetown, home to over 100 artists working in an inspiring array of mediums, including dance, blacksmithing, welding, woodworking, cycle fabrication, sculpture, painting, film, glass and art performances monthly.
