I hope you’ll excuse my horrible camera photos. These are a few of the pieces from Gary’s new solo show: “Too Much/Not too Much” at PG Gallery and Cafe. The show runs until March 15 so get on down there if you’re in the Evansville area! I’m not exaggerating when I call it an “amazing” show, but see for yourself…the following are a few pics Gary graciously allowed me to share from the show.
Gary runs MiLKSOP STUDiO and is pretty much phenomenal! I don’t know if you can tell much from my photos, but he uses various collage elements in his work like music sheets, labels and graphs, and I believe he achieves his impressive linework with ballpoint pen among other things. His bold lines and bright solid colors remind me of graffiti. At the same time, he treats his subjects with a great deal of sympathy in a way I honestly find beautiful and touching. (Hopefully that won’t piss him off.)
I’ll be featuring more great local artists and shows as I go to them. I had intended to do so before because there’s no dearth of talent in my modest little city, but I haven’t had the occasion until recently. As you’ll see, I’m incredibly fortunate to work with so many amazing people.
