> DESCRIPTION

The Gabba Gallery is pleased to present a multidisciplinary group show featuring over 50 artists, from new to established, exhibiting fine art to street art.

“Face It” will exhibit work that represents the six basic, emotional divisions; Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Fear, Disgust and Surprise. With works priced to sell at a $2,500 cap, the show will be constantly re-curated as the art is purchased and placed in the buyer’s hands. This show is a wonderful way to start an art collection or add to an existing one.

Participating artists include: Post-Graffiti Abstract Expressionist, Rene Gagnon,  a notorious street artist who has had numerous solo shows around the U.S., CANTSTOPGOODBOY, widely known and with a list of commercial work, he is celebrated for his lion’s head image in pop colors, Andrea Lahue aka Random Act is recognized coast to coast for her monumental botanical murals which can also be seen in galleries in New York and Paris, and Essi Zimm an architect and established contemporary artist whose work is hanging in the collection of Frank Gehry.

The Gabba Gallery is a ‘new to the scene’ contemporary art gallery, known for its unique curating of emerging to established artists from various disciplines such as street, to low brow, to photography, to sculptural, all sharing one space and creating a new dialogue. 

Opening night will be fast paced, similar to the last ‘pay and carry’ show curated by the gallery. As patrons bought works; Jason Ostro, Jaime Becker and Emma Palumbo would pull the art off the walls and place it in collectors’ hands to take home. The trio would then dash to the art storage room, find a piece that would thematically and physically fit the empty spot and suddenly the walls in the gallery changed. The constant, influx walls kept guests intrigued as they wondered what new piece would come out next to replace the work that was just purchased.
