Opening Reception: Friday, August 2, 6-10pm
This August, Grizzly Grizzly is proud to celebrate their 10th anniversary with a two-month show featuring the works of former Grizzly Grizzly members: Ruth Scott Blackson, Michael Ellyson, Michael Konrad, Jacque Liu, Cindy Stockton Moore, Joshua Weiss, and Bruce Wilhelm. Several of the artists will be presenting new and site specific works. Cindy Stockton-Moore will be creating a new wall drawing, using her ethereal ink-wash technique to explore the tenuous relationship between the figure and the natural environment. Michael Konrad will be erecting a structure with his signature handmade “DIYvek,” constructed from recycled plastic bags. Joshua Weiss presents a new collaboration with Jacob Lunderby, featuring wallpaper panels and objects which fuse the intimacy of painterly materials with bold, graphic imagery.
In Retrospect is the culmination of a year of programming, and a celebration of the artist members that have shaped the identity of Grizzly Grizzly over the past 10 years. Through a generous grant from the Velocity Fund, we hired writers to create critical and creative essays for each of the ten shows produced since September 2018. On Friday, September 6, 2019, we will launch a print publication which features these essays, along with photographic documentation of the shows, and an introductory essay by Roberta Fallon.
