Openings: Joe Sorren – “Everything’s Alright Sweetie, Please Get Some Sleep” @ Jonathan LeVine

Joe Sorren (featured) recently opened a great show at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery.

From his thoughtful impressionist inspired brushstrokes to dreamy soft textures & lighting, Joe touches the viewers in a way few artists we’ve seen could. The themes this series harnesses are the fear and concerns of vulnerability, but also the contrasting strength that comes with courage. This wonderful show is up until December 29th, […]

We will show you more of this later but for now, here is a look back to Andrew’s book signing (previewed) at the end of October where there was a generous display of his more familiar original work.
