The Group Show September 07 - 30, 2018.
Reception: Sept 07, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Artist Chat: Sept 16, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
In Sept we're showcasing the artists who have shown with us - in our Small Works Gallery, as Featured Artists and as members.
We've asked them to think beyond the constraints our usual requirements and really show is what they can do.
Our August member Spotlight Michael Alan Pratt.
Michael and his wife Reta are not only the founders of Pratt & Larson Tile, but are Sidestreet Arts' reason for being.
Michael's work goes in many directions. He explains that thusly: "'I tend to work in a series. Usually a series is somewhat finite. Usually 10 to 20 pieces but not always. My tattooed animal series has gone on for years and numbers close to 100 pieces. I work in both realistic and abstract imagery. Last year I did a series of 10 abstract works on paper, The Mexico Series, which was shown at Sidestreet. For now I’m back to realistic imagery. Actually all the work with modified animals is better termed fantastic surrealism. The current series is about 50’s fashion. Dior in particular. And cats and crows."
