The Grocery List — exhibition at Aisle 1 Gallery

The Grocery List
A Group Exhibition
Opening Reception at Aisle 1 Gallery
June 10, 2011, 7-11pm.

Join Aisle 1 Gallery on Cherokee Street Friday June 10 for the Opening Reception.

Myles’ new work is an investigation into the artist’s “complex balance between nature and nurture.” As questioned by Myles, is it “the nature of the material or its natural reaction to the application process and the artist’s manipulation or nurturing of the material?”

Painter and illustrator Angela works mostly on wood. She started drawing in 2005 as a hobby with sharpies, colored pencils, and crayons, and has since started painting delightful pieces. Angela remarks, “Honestly I never know how each piece is going to look when I begin. I have made so many variations of flowers I can’t remember them all.”­

Co-owner of Aisle 1 Gallery, Jenn is a mixed media artist whose work for this show will consist of five new 16 x 20 in. framed collages that incorporate screen prints, illustrations and graphic cut paper elements.

Daniel’s subject matter, predominantly character-based, is derived from his interest and appreciation of street art. His work reflects a variety of concepts ranging from completely aimless thoughts, to his feelings on worldly happenings and American politics.

DAVID LANGLEY's current work, in the form of large-scale painted collages, continues to present insightful alteration of American imagery. Langley's work has been featured in such publications as New American Paintings, Adbusters, and The Progressive.

Located at the corner of Texas at 2627 Cherokee Street, 63118, just one block west of Jefferson.
