inside my hands: the covid year — Opening Reception

inside my hands: the covid year — Opening Reception

drawings and poems by dougie padilla

Opening reception – Friday, September 10 from 6pm to 9pm

Our third show since reopening the gallery after Covid continues artwork that expresses itself in vibrant colors, exuberant gestures and inviting vistas.  The drawings and poetry broadsides by dougie padilla do just that.  As his title suggests, the work presented was produced during our time of Covid and seems an antidote to the sequestering and darkness we all experienced.

About his work, padilla writes:

1) during the covid year I went dynamite creative nuts more than ever and painted and drew and wrote poems intensely and incessantly and obsessively about this quite insane and oft delightful world we live in, and 

2) this show of drawings and poems are just the tip of that iceberg.
