Openings: “Wider than a postcard” & olive47 – “bonita bonita” @ Breeze Block Gallery

Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd. Over 400 individual works went into the postcard show with 200 artists providing postcard sized works. The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]

Previews: “Wider than a postcard” @ Breeze Block Gallery

On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]

The artist will present fresh work consisting of landscape relief paintings along with a series of porcelain-coated steel specimens painted with Japanese sumi ink. Euclide uses a range of media to create his signature immersive landscape pieces, including both components found in nature and also artificial ones as well. This duality of nature-made versus man-made reflects his highlight of the environmental friction of man’s […]

Openings: Gregory Euclide – “Observing only the ease of my own slipping toward your unknown” @ David B. Smith Gallery

A couple weeks back, the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver hosted the opening for Gregory Euclide’s latest solo show.

Upcoming: Gregory Euclide @ David B. Smith Gallery

It looks like all the pieces for  Gregory Euclide’s upcoming show in Denver at the David B. Smith Gallery have arrived safely. Along with his intriguing paintings which include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional elements, Euclide has also been working in the project room on one of those whiteboard paintings (seen below) that his fans have been impressed with recently.  If you recall, he worked on some of these pieces at the school he teaches at for educational purposes and eventually released a series of prints based on them. The […]

Showing: Gregory Euclide – “Nature Out There” @ Nevada Museum of Art

Currently at the Nevada Museum of Art, Gregory Euclide has a collection of works on display collectively entitled Nature Out There. Reminiscent of another artist regularly covered here on AM, Adam Neate (interviewed), Euclide has progressed his work to where there is an added dimensionality to the paintings he creates. Blending natural and found materials with his rendered scraps, the Minnesota-based artist creates encapsulated worlds where “pristine notions of landscape meet the reality of our current environment.” More photos after the jump…
