It was a packed house the opening night of Seth Armstrong’s “The Air Is Thick” and Erik Jones’ “Color|Full“. Robert Williams even paid Thinkspace a visit after a full day of book signings up at LAMAG. Both exhibits remain on view through April 18th, so please swing on by if you missed the opening reception. The shows really demand in person viewing to best appreciate them, from the numerous hidden details in Armstrong’s paintings to the three-dimensional aspects in Jones’ new works. Visit our Flickr account for full coverage of opening night and below are a few of our favorite shots.

‘There It Is’ features new works from three Oakland, CA based artists that explore the urban aesthetic from distinctly different points of view. From the observational based oil paintings of Brett Amory to the history drenched collage styled oil paintings of Adam Caldwell through to the surreal bent on the world around us as seen through the eyes of oil painter Seth Armstrong, ‘There It Is’ offers up a painterly tour de force that is a great way to kick off our 2011 program.
If you see a work you would like to purchase or inquire about in either of the above previews, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get right back to you with full details.
Both exhibitions open TONIGHT – so please come on through!
