The Geoffrey Young Gallery is pleased to announce a group show opening July 6th featuring 36 artists who use Gouache in their work.

Gouache, an opaque watercolor, dries fast and yields a bright matte finish. For many it has become the medium of choice for works on paper.

Well-known artists such as Kay Rosen, Tom Nozkowski, James Siena, Dike Blair, Judith Linhares and Bruce Pearson will be joined by younger emerging artists who've found something fresh to say in the medium.

Examples of the latter are Jessica Hess (pitch-perfect urban doorways defaced with graffiti), Erik Schoonebeek (architectural fantasies painted on old cloth book covers with redemptive precision), Alexander Gorlizki (Indian miniatures), Garth Weiser (bright abstractions with slanting light, ambiguous depth & variously combed surfaces), Julie Evans (mandalas in hot light), Don Doe (Madonnas suckling, pirate babes dominating), and Fred Valentine (tiny paintings of houses with their reflections in water, kitschy and inviting).

Lucas Reiner will have images of trees altered by power lines and Los Angeles traffic, Derek Buckner will have birds-eye views of dense Brooklyn life, Katia Santibanez will show abstractions based on observation of plant forms, Zoe Pettijohn will show textural conflations of pattern and figure, and Louise Belcourt her sweeping views of the North Atlantic as seen through a coastline of sculptural hedges.

Among many others!

There will be a reception for the artists July 6th from 5:30-7:30, to which the public is invited.
