September 11-October 10th, 2015
Bakehouse Art Complex: Audrey Love Gallery “Last Exit: Painting”
In 1981 Tom Lawson wrote Last Exit: Painting, an essay putting painters on the defensive, directly holding each artist accountable for using paint as a medium. On the brink of that essay’s 35th anniversary the BAC is hosting a show based on the same principle. In those 35 years painting has changed a good deal and here is an opportunity to prove painting’s eternal potential. The show will kick off BAC’s 30th season, opening September 11th and will be on view through October 10th.
Featuring Paintings by: Sayre Gomez, Mauricio Gonzalez, Javier Hernandez, Siebren Versteeg, Joan Lesikin, Anthony Hamilton, Paul Glenn, Grace Cummings, Lauren Matsumoto, Meg Aubrey, Rebecca Franco, Kim Moore, Laura Sharp Wilson, Natan Pernick, Jason John, Juan Neira, Melissa Lowry Mosley, Paola Gracey, Sean Miller, Dana Donaty, Anne Stagg, Julio Figueroa Beltran, Boryana Rusenova Ina, Vincent Serbin, Jeff Carpenter, Lily Kuonen
Spectrum-Gestalt 2 – August 2015
Part curatorial, part installation Spectrum-Gestalt brings together artists’ works from a wide variety of genres and mediums, grouping them into an expansive spectrum of color. The first spectrum was one of our most popular exhibits and the unofficial launch of our new Bergamot Station space. The second incarnation will have a similar concept but a different installation structure. Spectrum-Gestalt is part of an ongoing series of installation/curatorials exploring gestalt principles by Australian artist/curator, Airom.
Date: August 8th – August 16th
