August could turn out to be a vintage month for Gigantic Gallery. We culled work by eight artists, both home-grown and imported, for a show entitled Terroirism: landscapes & other fertile fields, and the result is a robust blend of aesthetic profiles sure to delight any discerning palate.
Because the show combines a spectrum of styles, the viewer’s initial impression might be one of divisive variety, as if the show’s cohesion suffers from uncareful picking. But if one allows it to steep, the entwined and complementary aspects of each component bloom in the eye. Anne Jankowski’s limning of mid-summer is highlighted by the pyrography of Thomas Malcolm Cook. Christian Villacillo’s geometrics find a congruence in the surreal architecture of Drew Etienne, and their gravitas is answered by levity in the pop sensibilities of Jon Carling and Ian Seniff.
Terroirism: landscapes & other fertile fields harvests paintings, prints, and encaustic from Jon Carling, Thomas Malcolm Cook, Drew Etienne, Anne Jankowski, Karl Kaiser, Ian Seniff, Siolo Thompson, and Christian Villacillo.
Please join us for the opening on Thursday, August 2nd, starting at 5:30. The show will run through Sunday, September 2nd.
Jacqueline Bos just dropped off her work for this Thursday’s opening, Home on the Page. She included these absolutely adorable little books… Each are hand-made and numbered and feature illustrations of succulents and cacti! $12 each.
This July we will be featuring work by eight Portland-area illustrators in a show called Home On The Page. The collection is themed loosely around life in the illustrious Pacific Northwest, and Portland in particular, from which the artists drew their inspiration.
Home On The Page will feature work by Brooke Weeber, Meg Hunt, Maryanna Hoggatt, Jacqueline Bos, Brenda Rose, Susannah Kelly, Michelle Maule, and Shannon Larson.
Please join us for the opening on July 5. The show will run through July 29. For more information please visit http://giganticgallery.info/shows/home-on-the-page.
