Art Por Favor

Art for the weekend:

From Kettle Art Gallery:

Prepared Americans // June 14 (Flag Day) - July 12, 2008
Kettle Art presents, “Prepared Americans,” new paintings by Cathey Miller depict portraits of women clad in tactical gear, gas masks, ski masks and American flags inhabiting bunkers and rooms full of video screen. Miller uses bold colors and a painterly style to present a doomsday scenario that is tempered by the occasional orange bicycle, a sweetie smiling face, or a fluorescent jellyfish. Her inspiration for this new work are the constant stream of violent images on modern computer, television, movie, and gaming screens, are “Are You Ready? A Guide to Citizen Preparedness” issued by the Federal Emergency management Agency. Miller is a 1985 graduate of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Opening Reception Saturday, June 14, 2008 7PM - 10PM.

Pluto Is Not A Planet at Hal Samples Gallery will feature some fine local talent, if I do say so myself... and I do!
