Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

by Suzanne on June 12th, 2011

UPDATE JUNE 29, 2011: Here are a few images of the Shadowside show taken from my Flickr:

Shadowside is Bath-based Bo.Lee Gallery's effort to introduce the London crowd to their roster of artists. They hired the perfectly located Blackall Studios for their 4-day-only group exhibition. Yep, Blackall is THAT expensive to hire, trust me, I know...

Dark Introductions to the Disowned Self - as the subtitle suggests, might be a statement somewhat difficult to fulfill with most of the art on show not really being that dark or that Jungian for that matter, but I can see it definitely working for the likes of Ione Rucquoi's (featured above) and Beth Carter's work.

And anyway, the fact that Kate MacDowell's works will be on show should be reason enough to attend. So there.

Other exhibiting artists include: Patrick Haines, Neil Moore, Mercedes Helnwein, Chris Anthony

Uhmm.. I assume/hope/pray that the exhibition title for this show is mildly ironic - otherwise I'd be seriously scared:

Florida Souvenirs - Sand, Surf & Sin in the Sunshine State presents three works by porcelain artist extraordinaire Kate MacDowell: Gun Shy, Entangled (below) and Queen of Denial.

The exhibition opens this Saturday and there's an artist talk at 6 PM prior to the public reception at 6.30 PM. Details below.
