\n\nAngels Gate Cultural Center pres ents two solo shows that feature the works of Frank Minuto in a little show for sara and Harold Plople in American Characters for our first show of th e new year opening on January 30\, 2011 from 2- 4pm.

\n

For the past 5 years\, Frank Minuto collaborated with the model and former ballerina Sara Streeter to create a body of work that explores various emotional psyches within settings such as 50s Las Vegas show girls\, Persian harlots and Pari sian Cafs. Minutos work reveals the intimate life of different personas as well as illustrate the close relationship that often develops between artis t and muse through drawings\, photographs and paintings. The vanity Minuto used in the 50s Las Vegas series will be set up in the gallery for visitors to photograph themselves much in the same way Minuto photographed and pain ted Sara in his studio.

\n

Harold Plople writes portraits are like the man in the New Testament Scripture who looks at himself in the mirror and almost immediately forgets what he looks like. In his series entitled Ameri can Characters\, his portraits are of men that have defined the American la ndscape over the last 200 years. The paintings are dark and luminous as fac es emerge through loose and quick brush strokes to reveal the content of th e character behind the story many of us are already familiar with from folk lore and school.

\n

Together\, both exhibitions address the larger nar rative of the human condition through the depiction of power\, mystique\, f antasy and inevitably our frailties. The shows are located in Building A an d will run until April 15\, 2011. The gallery is open Tuesday through Satur day from 11am 5pm.
