Art Connects New York and Spattered Columns are pleased to announce the opening of Don Porcella: Everything and Nothing at All, a solo exhibition featuring new works and signature pieces from the artist’s studio. This multi-media exhibition will feature Porcella’s trademark pipe cleaner sculptures and hand made encaustic paintings, as well as video and sound components in a gallery-wide installation.

Don Porcella (BFA California College of Arts and Crafts, MFA Hunter College) has been a creative force in the New York City art world for over ten years.  Porcella utilizes humble materials in innovative ways to craft a unique commentary on the human condition.  Drawing from his own imagery of the suburban and his interest in folk art, cartoons, and science fiction, Porcella's work allows the subjective and strange to penetrate humorous representations of a wildly imaginative reality. Don Porcella: Everything and Nothing at All includes new installations featuring cave painters, crystal skulls, alien encounters, bonfires, birds of prey, and other whimsical work.

Born and raised in Modesto, California, Don Porcella’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries in New York City, Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen, East Hampton, Washington D.C., Miami and San Francisco. Porcella’s art has been reviewed in the New York Times, NY ARTS, Fiber Arts Magazine, Chelsea Now, San Francisco Magazine and the Village Voice to name a few.

The opening reception for Don Porcella: Everything and Nothing at All will take place from 6pm-8pm on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at Spattered Columns, 491 Broadway, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10012. The show will run until October 28, 2011, and will feature a live musical performance in the gallery by the artist and Nicholas Fevelo on Wednesday, October 26th, 6pm-8pm.

Spattered Columns is a program of Art Connects New York, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that seeks to enrich the lives of New Yorkers by making original visual artwork more readily available in non-traditional settings.
