GROUP SHOW "TOP OF THE DOME 6" AT CREWEST GALLERY

Show runs thru November 29th, 2009

Los Angeles, CA -  Crewest invites you to their 6th annual Dia De Los Muertos Celebration exhibition “Top of the Dome IV” featuring dozens of ceramic skulls designed by Gregg Stone and transformed by the imagination of today’s hottest tattoo artists, painters, sculptors, graffiti artists, muralists, graphic designers and fine artists. This year’s Top of the Dome promises to bring an extreme level of creativity meant to inspire and stir the curious nature of the roaming soul in search of interesting and intriguing artwork to call their own. Top of the Dome is not just an exhibition but rather an experience you do not want to miss.

In conjunction with the exhibition, featured artist and painter Gregg Stone makes an impact with his collection of eerily beautiful multi-media paintings that reveal his travels thru the avenues and byways of border region Hispanic communities. While the socio-economic underbelly of these locales clearly captivates him, Stone is also keenly aware of the cultural and architectural treasures that often incongruously share space alongside the hybrid flotsam of class inequity, urban anarchy and increasing globalization. Stone transposes this uniquely south-of-the-border visual, along with his sensitive portrayal of people inhabiting it, into the vivid tapestry of images that forms the sum total of his art.

Additional events:
November 12th: Artwalk from 6 to 10pm with DJ Phyz Ed, live printing by Two Rabbits.

Artist bios available upon request.

SOLO SHOW:  "So That Man Should Not be Darkened by Vice
Opening January 9th, 6pm -11pm,  Show runs through the  month

The exhibit will be taking place right next door to the Pasadena Armory for the Arts at the Heritage Wine Company.  This is a great location with a great selection of wine, not to mention the other great spots you can visit for a nice dinner or evening dessert in Old Town.  I would love to see you all there.

In this series works emerge that in a contemporary sense can be seen as subversive.  Using biblical text and mundane imagery initially seen as disparate, these works explicate the domestic everyday as a channel for divine intervention, and spiritual truths.  Very similar to a conceptual approach to art making, I encourage the viewer to think about how they think when looking at this body of work
