On Saturday, January 10th, Flower Pepper Gallery is pleased to present 40 x 400, curated by Mark Todd. 40 x 400 is a collection of 8” x 10” works by a diverse roster of 40 acclaimed artists. Each piece will be priced at $400, giving new and seasoned collectors alike an opportunity to add highly desirable pieces from sought after artists such as Jim Houser and Shark Toof to their collection. From the elegantly executed yet grotesquely satirical oil paintings of today’s society by Sean Norvet to the quirky and incredibly cute cartoonish works of Amanda Visell, this show offers something for everyone. These pieces will go quickly, so arrive early! Pre sales are encouraged. The show’s curator, Mark Todd says of his inspiration behind 40 x 400, “There is something I find interesting about curating a gallery show with a set size restriction. This may sound anti-creative or stifling in some way but I see it as a way to mesh a group of artists together without favoring any one artist. By sharing the same amount of space to explore, the artists are given equal opportunity to have a conversation with the viewer. For this show, all of the pieces will be priced at $400 each and the 40 invited artists were asked to create a piece measuring 8" x 10" vertical. I intentionally chose this very unassuming standard size as a way to let the art just be.”
Please join us on January 10th, at Flower Pepper Gallery for our inaugural exhibition of 2015, 40 x 400.
The reception is open to the public and on view until February 3rd, 2015. For purchase inquiries, or to request a VIP preview please email firstname.lastname@example.org
