I may be the exhibitions director at Gallery C, but it was our director, Alisun Woolery, who hooked us up with Kent Twitchell. Props to Alisun…
We had a great meeting – Kent has some great stories and is like the last great hippie, so easygoing – and the gallery will be getting some work consigned from him for our racks. So we have subtracted many of the artists who were with the space (almost forty) and have added three so far: Baby Smith, Roland Reiss and Kent Twitchell. The gallery does not represent artists so much as it stockpiles a diverse selection of styles and media by artists who are at the top of their game.
Roland called today with the title for his November solo show (the space is so big we can host two solo shows and they function independent of each other). He wants to call it Onshore Flow. Meanwhile, Kenny Harris, a mainstay of the gallery for years now, gave me five titles to pick from for his show that will be going along with Roland’s (or perhaps it would be better to say that his show will be “contrasting with” Roland’s). Then we got an email from Kenny that he is at Burning Man so maybe we will flip coins to see which title will go with his show while he is flipping out at Burning Man.
Saturday night is an opening at i-5 gallery for 7 Sacraments 7 Sins which is curated by Stephanie Mercado – I think this one of those shows where I will have to scout new talent – seeing as the gallery is right next to the Coagula offices that should be easy!
