BISBEE — Making Sausage is the new exhibit that will open at Subway Gallery, 43 Brewery Avenue on Dec. 9. Paul, Steve and Chris Bovee will be featured, along with their guest, Art Herman.
As Otto von Bismarck is quoted as saying, and we paraphrase, “making laws is like making sausage, it is better not to see them being made.” The same holds true for making art, and this show is truly representative of that expression. In fact, one of the three has compared his brain to that of mashed potatoes. That should make for a rather interesting and intriguing exhibition!
Making Sausage will consist of new work by this trio, and their guest, and is a show not to be missed. Paintings in oil and watercolor cover a broad spectrum of subject matter and style, including figures, landscapes, dogscapes, buildingscapes, cloudscapes, abstract nightmares (including mashed potatoes) and the occasional tasteful nude.
Opening reception will be held Saturday, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Subway Gallery’s new location. Reception will include medium-to-light refreshments and even lighter food. It costs nothing to view this all-new body of work. The event is free (though the paintings are not). The public is urged to attend and enjoy the event.
Subway Gallery is open Thursdays through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located at 43 Brewery Avenue. And as the many Brewery Avenue artists proclaim, “Walk the Gulch for Great Art.”
