Artist Reception: Saturday, September 12, 12-2 pm

McClain Gallery is pleased to present our premier exhibition for fall 2015, Bo Joseph: Souvenirs from Nowhere. This is the New York-based artist’s second solo exhibition at McClain Gallery and will highlight his new works on paper: mid-to large scale works in which the artist intricately layers and composes outlines and silhouetted forms pulled from a variety of printed sources. The works range from spatially complex compositions to a new series in oil pastel, acrylic and tempera with perforated, stencil-like cut-outs.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a forthcoming catalog with an essay by artist and critic Matthew Weinstein.
