Via the gallery:
“For the third year running, Raymond Butler and Christopher Machorro will be organizing Black Market Bodega, a small works group invitational built around the theme of a neighborhood store. They have designed the concept so that the installation takes on the appearance of an actual bodega storefront. This year’s show features 30 underground artists with works covering the lowbrow aesthetic of illustration, tattooing, lowrider culture, anime and manga, to cowboy art.
This season’s Gallery Artist Group Show features four artists who have shown regularly at Plush. Jacqueline Blanco will present new small scale oil paintings based in studio performance photos of cake splattered faces. Famed Dallas Oak Cliff jazz musician Dennis Gonzalez has been making small talisman objects, which address esoteric themes. Norman Kary’s current chalkboard pieces reflect his early fascination with both magic and drawing. And Brent Ozaeta’s most recent work involves selections from his Image Atlas, a collection of thousands of reference images, some of which he has screen printed onto used record albums.”
