The opening of Van Arno’s “Upright” and Molly Gruninger’s “Luminescent” was a whirlwind night filled with laughter, art legends, costumes, animal friends, and of course great art. At the door stood a friend of Arno’s dressed as a butler showing off the exclusive wooden box set of prints, and throughout the evening the models in Arno’s work dressed in black and adorned with a white rose enjoyed the showing with the packed house of art enthusiasts. The Godfather of the Low Brow movement, Robert Williams, came to show his support for Van Arno along with fellow movement veteran Anthony Ausgang.
In the project room, Molly Gruninger’s “Luminescent” illuminated her understanding and manipulation of light in her flawless oil painting works. The pieces look digitally rendered, but the only digital element in her pieces are the references she uses to then put paint on canvas.
Both exhibitions are on view now through February 24th.
