My friend Ron alerted me to an awesome upcoming exhibition at the William Baczek Fine Arts gallery. From May 2-June 2 they’ll be featuring Travis Louie and his series, The Secret Pet Society. An example is Julia & Her Swamp Friend, 2012, acrylic on board, 20 x 16″:
What dreamy, eerie, cool art. From the description for this piece: “Julia discovered him while she was collecting red-spotted salamanders in the swamp behind her parent’s farm house. She mistook the crown of branch-shaped tendrils on its head as a thicket of dead birch trees. The creature turned out to be quite harmless.”
Need to make a road trip to check out this exhibit.
