Mark Messersmith: Southern Obsessions

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 24, 6:00 – 8:30 pm; Artist Talk begins at 5:15 pm

“Messersmith’s mastery of painting is underscored in these works, which are laden with high-keyed color, dizzying perspectives, careening imagery, and virtuoso light effects. They are also clearly tied to the history of painting, with references that range from Late Medievalism to nineteenth century Romanticism to contemporary outsider art. Part P.T. Barnum and part Walt Whitman
