LPP Artist Pete Watts at Joshua Liner Gallery, NY

Ellis Island by Pete Watts

Summer Group Exhibition
August 14 to September 2, 2010

Reception Saturday August 14th from 6-9pm

Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present the 2010 Summer Group Exhibition showcasing 24 artists, including established gallery regulars, emerging artists, and newcomers. The exhibition will feature painting, assemblage, drawing, and sculpture, with works by:

Cleon Peterson, David Kassan, Dennis McNett, Evan Hecox, Ian Francis, James Roper, Jeremy Fish, Jessica Joslin, Kenichi Yokono, Kris Kuksi, Mac, Mi Ju, Mike Davis, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Pete Watts, Ryan Bradley, Ryan McLennan, Shawn Barber, SWOON, Tat Ito, Tiffany Bozic, Tomokazu Matsuyama and Tony Curanaj.

Providing a preview for the gallery’s 2010/2011 program, many from the Summer Group Exhibition will return for solo shows over the coming year, including the gallery’s solo debut of Dennis McNett and his tattoo-influenced, skull-and-skeleton woodcut prints and papier-mâché sculptures in December. This fall, the gallery will present its solo debut of Tiffany Bozic, whose ethereal acrylic-on-maple-panel works imagine a compassionate merger of the animal, plant, and human worlds. And in early 2011, “Barnstormer” Pema Rinzin, fresh from his inclusion in the Rubin Museum of Art’s Tradition Transformed exhibition, will be featured in the gallery’s solo debut of his spellbinding abstract works adapting mystical motifs from the Buddhist tradition in ground mineral pigments and gold on canvas.

Also of special note, Joshua Liner’s 2010 Summer Group Exhibition will feature works by gallery newcomers—painters David Kassan (contemporary fusion of classic portraiture and abstract painting) and Kenichi Yokono (pop-culture mash-ups of pretty youths, graphic design, and wild animals in a signature red-and-white palette)—as well as work by the celebrated “Barnstormer” and solo phenom, SWOON. Works by gallery artists Evan Hecox, Mike Davis, and Shawn Barber will also be featured in the summer group show, along with gallery newcomers Jessica Joslin, Mi Ju, Pete Watts, and Ryan Bradley.
