Art opening reception: Inappropriate for a Public Space by John Slaby
Inappropriate for a Public Space features the works of John Slaby. The title for the show came about from some of Slaby's recent experiences in applying to juried competitions which were to hang in public spaces, such as the lobby of an office building. To avoid controversy, the rules for such exhibits preclude any work involving sex, violence and religion, which comprises most of his work.
Lately he has abandoned this restrictive idea for the freedom to paint whatever he is drawn to. The result is an eclectic show in a variety of styles and subjects.
On view through Dec. 6.
