MESH Gallery in Morganton, NC, Features Works by Jan Oliver Alms

MESH Gallery in Morganton, NC, will present the exhibit, almstudio-Paintings by Jan Oliver Alms from the Year 2011, featuring never before shown, mixed media works created in the year 2011, on view from Jan. 3 through Feb. 24, 2012. A reception will be held on Jan. 6, from 6-8pm.

This show represents artwork created within the last year at almstudio, the working studio of Jan Oliver Alms. It is composed of several new explorative directions and is like nothing you have ever seen in Alms’ exhibitions.

This exhibit will take a new turn in art presentation and procedure. The show will feature a number of large diptychs, triptychs and compositions created using many 2”, 6”, and 8” square canvases arranged by the artist.

“The compositions I am creating for this show represent only one possible presentation of the work,” says Alms. “I invite the art lover to purchase any or all of the canvases from a composition and rearrange them on the wall of their home or office, creating their own interpretation of how my work should be displayed. I consider this interactive exchange between Artist and Buyer an important aspect of the show.”

This show will be “cash & carry,” so as paintings are sold, the empty spaces will be replaced with more works, leading to an exhibit that may be very different at the end from when it opens. We hope you will visit this show more than once and enjoy this process of interpretation and re-interpretation. Enjoy!
