2013 has arrived and things are a brewin’. An entirely new body of work has been coming together and will be shown at multiple locations throughout the year. Additionally, a plan has been formulated to get Gated Community into print and distribute it to the world. Many more details on these things will be forthcoming soon. Namaste.
One of the first galleries I ever got really hyped on… fifteen years in!
New paintings by Mickael Broth and photographs by Greg Bethmann. A little late on this for the opening… but the work is up all month.
