Monaco Gallery: Friday, 7 February 2020

Exhibitions open on Friday, February 7, from 7 – 10 pm
and run through March 6, 2020.

Edo Rosenblith conceived "Vultures at Midnight" as a way to provide a platform for four wildly different artists who he has collaborated with in the past, to come together to show their newest work. For Rosenblith, an important part of being an artist is knowing one’s limitations, engaging with a community of trusted peers, and sharing resources in order to support one another. This is how artistic communities survive and thrive. "Vultures at Midnight" will feature work by Edo Rosenblith, Janie Stamm, Jon Young and Erik S. Peterson.

Monaco’s Project Gallery accommodates a generous display of small works on paper by Peter Pranschke. Consisting of several hundred individual drawings, cut portions of drawings, and collages pasted together from their fragments, the show features pieces in various stages of completion that have slowly been collected and reworked over a thirteen-year period. Scenes and personalities from life and imagination are depicted in equal measure using colored pencil, India ink, erasure and gauche. This inflated selection of material, sifted from an even larger and more congested pool of otherwise useless debris, highlights the artist's habitual practice of mark making and provides insight into a creative process that yields an overabundance of mindlessly rendered images.
