LOCKED AND LOADED AT JOSHUA LINER GALLERY

Uncategorized April 13th, 2008

I stopped by the inaugural show at the newly minted Joshua Liner gallery and checked out the group show they have hanging entitled Locked and Loaded. I dug the show lots of good work and I got turned on to Oliver Vernon whose work I wasn’t previously familiar with and who’s stuff I really really dug!

Besides that the usual suspects were included in this group show but enough of me here’s some images of the work:

Marc Dean Veca does Popeye justice

Congrats to the Joshua Liner gallery cat’s curated a dope show, sorry I didn’t post more some of my pics were bogus. I wanted to show the Craola piece and the Futura joint but my flicks weren’t up to par my bad like I said I’m working on it. Lots of great art around town this week another reason why New York City is the best place in the world…..Now if I could just stay here for a few these days………..
