"The Cartoon Buffet"
Whimsey and exaggeration will take center stage at In-Town Gallery for the month of July when artist-member Bradley Wilson presents “The Cartoon Buffet” . This collection of new work consists of paintings and drawings depicting dancers, birds, fish, cats, flowers and other subjects in a humorous manner. All will be introduced at the opening reception from 5pm to 8pm on the First Friday, July 5.
The artist states that, “Increasingly, I am becoming more and more interested in taking a subject and stretching it, pulling it, squashing it, and generally twisting it up so that the overall effect surprises me. We’ve all seen countless paintings of dancers and birds. My goal as an artist is to take a familiar subject and play with it through exaggeration and distortion until it is presented as something unexpected and pleasing to myself, and hopefully to whomever sees it.” Contact: Helen Burton, 423-478-5262.
