The exhibition opens on July 9, 2010 and closes on August 20, 2011. A reception for the artists will be held at the gallery on Saturday, July 9, 2011, 5 - 8 p.m.
These four words are the impetus for a collection of works, a collection of practices, being brought together in this CB1 Gallery group exhibition. The exhibition includes works that share or overlap in their manifest physicality. These are works that speak together. “painting. design. speculation. generosity.” is about a conversation among different artists, different painters all of whom make work that addresses painting as an open proposition rather than a rigid set of historically determined decisions.
