From Allen Brewer’s statement:
An innate ability to re-create life’s beauty has always been the driving force behind Allen’s work, whether it’s with realism or a more simple style.
From Greg Gossel’s statement:
My work is about life, the struggle, and the beauty. I try to accomplish this through the interplay of many diverse words, images, and gestures.
“What draws me to both of these artists’ work is their ability to approach fine art from a design perspective. Each artists work stands on it’s own. While these works don’t seem to want to live next to each other, there is a happy visual symmetry when viewed together.” Yuri Arajs, curator at Placement Gallery.
Barbette and Placement Gallery have come together to present a series of new exhibitions at Barbette every 2 months. Each exhibit will each have it’s own unique focus, featuring group shows or solo exhibits.
8-1am Sunday through Thursday
