Look for several new shows at the galleries at 78th Street Studios during this month’s Third Friday. Keep going to the back of the top floor where the PopEye Gallery in the Survival Kit Space with be presenting new works by Dan Miller (pictured) of Rotten Meat Gallery. The Cleveland native works primarily in acrylic and watercolor, combining whimsy and darkness in his illustrations.
His show, Draw Me a Sheep, will feature his paintings based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s dark, philosophical novella The Little Prince, known as a chldren’s book that’s really for adults.
“This book holds a special place in my heart I feel it keeps me grounded and gives me hope in the darkest of times,” says Miller. “The Little Prince is beloved the world over having been translated into over 250 languages. It is a tale of exploration and self-discovery and above all else a reminder of how easily ‘matters of consequence’ can obfuscate the simple truths all around us. It asks us to pause and remember to slow down and appreciate those things most dear both small and large.”
At the other end of the building on the ramp level, ARTneo officially opens Pop & Circumstance: Works by Andy Dreamingwolf. It takes a visual look at the entwined histories of pharmaceutical and soft drink industries and explores the concept of self-medication.
HEDGE Gallery will debut Fluid Depths, a group of new oil paintings by Katy Richards, revolving around underwater life and how the innate qualities of oil paint relate to sea imagery.
At E11even2 gallery, whose founding principle is affordable art, you’ll find its $50 where a variety of talented local artists will have pieces available for only — you guessed it! — $50.
Of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg — or the rather, the offerings found throughout the four-story building. Come early (especially if you want to find a parking space) and stay late — you still won’t see it all.
