I had the pleasure of meeting sculptor Johnathan McDermott. There’s a brief video interview below. Johnathan seems to have a lot of thought behind his work and the finished products are polished jewels. Morrison Pierce has some new raw work. His work seems to be dipped in a bucket of chaos wrapped in plastic, dripping with emotion. Served up with a side of honesty. Business as usual. I might be bias though as Morrison is a close friend. Please go see for yourself.
Allison Alford has a couple of very interesting mixed media pieces with nice textures and pleasant color. The photo collage is nostalgic in subject matter. Pat Tally has a grid of portraits of citizens pumped with road rage. Each portrait done with a unique gesture of humanity.
Mark Whitehead’s photography was hard to make out for me. A juxtaposition of different subjects. I’m not sure what the focus was. And finishing out the show, Nicole Middleton showed animals dipped in plastic, illustrated with bright cheerful painterly colors. Perfect for my infant’s nursery.
As usual the August Bogda group show consists of several local artists. I’m pretty sure you can find something you dig and something you can afford. Of course don’t take my word for it, go check it out for yourself.
