DESCRIPTION

To celebrate the Ides of March, The Box contemporary art gallery is proud to present the works of artists Jeff Claassen, Anthony Mangicapra, and Jason Ramos.  This collection of mixed media paintings will open at the Costa Mesa gallery on Saturday March 15, 2008, from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM. The exhibition will run through the beginning of May. 

“It is no coincidence that these three artists have chosen to show together for this exhibition,” says curator Johnny Sampson.  “Their work exposes an intimate aspect of current affairs and the extraordinary--what better occasion to reveal them than upon the such a historically significant date?  When confronted by a seer’s prophesy to beware the Ides of March, Caesar dismissed him claiming, ‘he is a dreamer’.  That moment changed history.  We are still influenced by that decision today.  Utilizing many mediums, these three artists fuse delicate intimacy with the urban, revealing the sublime beneath contemporary life and current events, challenging us with new dreams and revelations to experience”.

The Box Gallery is located adjacent to the LAB and the CAMP in Costa Mesa.  It is a multi-use space, sharing its walls with Splitends Salon.
