David Kuntz: For the Love of Art
Track 16 Gallery is pleased to present For the Love of Art, an exhibition of work by David Kuntz. The exhibition will run through April 21 - May 7, 2011 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 23, 2011 from 6–9 P.M. Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday from noon to 6 P.M.
David Kuntz's inspiration -- aside from Pauline, his muse and wife of sixty-five years -- has been the art the couple has seen on their many art-centric European travels, as well as the works depicted in the myriad art books David has collected in his decades as an early and passionate flea marketeer. During and following his career as a physician in Los Angeles, artist/inventor/scientist Kuntz created a wide variety of works in a range of mediums, many of them homages to post-impressionists including Giacometti, Calder, Matisse and Modigliani. Yet each of these works are recognizable as Kuntz's own, infused with his deft sense of humor and passionate embrace of science, art and literature, rendering these works as unique and engaging as the man himself.
Gail Greenfield Randall: Left Turn at Normal
Track 16 Gallery is pleased to present Left Turn at Normal, an exhibition of new work by Gail Greenfield Randall. The exhibition will run through April 21 - May 7, 2011 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 23, 2011 from 6–9 P.M. Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday from noon to 6 P.M.
Gail Greenfield Randall's second solo show at Track 16 strengthens the theme of narrative collage. Her boxes, filled with vintage items -- tiny dolls, spools, bottles, advertising, even small birds -- tell stories of beauty, danger, longing and love. So too, Randall has redefined the genre of the wall mounted box, to include open top tables, small suitcases, and articulated figures made from limbs of vintage furniture. She is a story-teller, and the stories she has to tell are never ending, and compelling.
