Last Saturday I went to the opening party at the Memorial Art Gallery for the exhibition Paint Made Flesh. The show was great.
*I blacked out the gallery in respect of MAG’s policy of not photographing in the Grand Gallery.
A couple of quotes from the gallery walls I kinda fell in love with:
“To paint, to write, to teach in the most dedicated sincere way, is the most intimate affirmation of creative life we possess in these despairing years.” -Philip Gustom
“Arists today are…attuned to the sadness, terror, and the ecstasy of history, They understand that the present is history and that all art is contemporary art.” -Jerry Saltz
