World-Wide Peep Show
Opening 5.00pm Monday 6 October.
RSVPs by email email@example.com would be supportive but not necessary. We love walk ins too, so tell a friend. Thanks in advance.
Alternatively we are making Saturday morning refreshments at the gallery for those of you who can’t make it during the week. Please come along then, an RSVP would help us serve you.
The gallery will be open from 11.00am – 7.00pm Tuesday to Sunday. John will be using the time creatively (only some say) – with a trestle of wonderment, which he will be using to create further works. To see the artist in action week days…please come along.
“Twenty years plus in LA CA might have something to do with it , folks.”
Turn up, drop in & freak out!
My artwork is assemblages of vintage & antique objects; fabric, porcelain, ephemera, flotsam and jetsam. The array creates 3D, often tactile, sculptural observations. Works are often fun, but designed to emote and reflect social, metaphysical and sometimes deeply personal events. With this communion I hope to stimulate my audience, and evoke feelings on many levels, even if only a smile.
