On Saturday, June 28th, Flower Pepper Gallery is pleased to present Summer Flies, a small collection of works by 17 diverse and compelling artists, who have come together to explore the warmest of the four temperate seaons, summer. Featuring the musical stylings of David Strother. "Summer flies is as much an exloration of summertime, along with all of the bright and beautiful things summer brings, as it is a study of the transient nature of seasons and existence. Here today, gone tomorrow. It is a longing for long days and sunsets, dragon flies and bicyle chains, but also a feeling of nostalgia and fleeting moments. Try and catch it and it's gone. Try and define it and it slips away. It is something found in a quiet moment, or an old forgotten song played by a campfire that burned out long ago. Summer flies, like you and I." by Summer Flies' curator Walt Hall
Whether it’s the multi-layered, mixed-media, urban landscapes of Jon Measures, or the lush and painterly, metaphoric works of Lacey Bryant, Summer Flies promises to provide a sumptuous and sundry start to the summer season.
Artist Lacey Bryant says of her works for Summer Flies, “I’ve been really connecting to this theme, since I’ve been spending a lot of time walking around my neighborhood and enjoying the season. My garden is full of Zinnias, tomatoes and 8 foot tall sunflowers all buzzing with activity. With this series I wanted my color palette to reflect a hot California summer just as it begins to fade. There’s something so bittersweet about the last few weeks of summer.”
Please join us on June 28th, 2014 at Flower Pepper Gallery for a welcoming of summer and a celebration of moments too temporary.
The reception is open to the public and on view until August 1st, 2014. For purchase inquiries, or to request a VIP preview please email email@example.com
