This Weekend’s Art Openings of Note.
Let’s face it, times are tough. What better way to cope than by looking at artwork and flossin’ with that V.I. feel you get when drinks are on the house. For more info about the galleries and the exhibitions visit their respective websites.
I will say something about this first opening.
Richard Patterson is a British artist who happens to be based in Dallas. He is an amazing painter who rose to prominence within a group of artists known as the YBA’s (Young British Artists). Some of the other well known YBA’s include Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucus, Gary Hume, the late Angus Fairhurst and Fiona Rae. I am not going to give you an art history lesson, but these artists are a big deal (just ask the internet), and one of them is among us, so don’t sleep on this one.
