DESCRIPTION

Book of Taboo: Featuring the Art of Jana Brike

May 14, 2011 6-10pm


Distinction Gallery and ArtHatch present a compelling new show featuring the extraordinary work of Latvian artist Jana Brike, entitled "Book of Taboo". Drawing inspiration from children's books, Soviet animation, Russian realism, and Renaissance masters, Jana Brike will be exhibiting brand new paintings and drawings created specifically for this show. Using haunting, dream-like, subtle images, Brike achieves a poetic and magical symbolism of the bizarre and complicated world that surrounds us. Jana Brike will be attending the show with combined support from ArtHatch and the government of Latvia who is extremely impressed with her art. Coinciding with the show, Jana Brike will be participating in a Q&A Session the evening of the reception on Saturday May 14, 2011 from 6-7 pm at *ArtHatch, formerly Distinction.  The opening reception will be held on Saturday, May14, 2011 from 6-10pm with Live Music, complimentary Stone Brewery Beer and Wiens Family Cellars Wine for guests 21 years of age or older.

ArtHatch is a 7000 square foot building which houses the front gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, "The Alley," featuring new and previous works from over 75 artists, the teen room featuring artwork by 6 local teens, 14 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 800 square feet, featuring the work of over 28 local artists, and "The Lounge", containing 8 walls featuring local artists.
