5:00pm - 7:00pm
The Grand Bohemian Gallery invites you to attend the grand opening and artist reception for "Shared Sensibilities" new works by father and son artists Al & Owen Lostetter.
This won’t be the first time the father and son artists will show together. This is a show with the continuity of their shared visionary imagery but also promises some surprises in both of their art.
This sharing of sensibilities by Al and Owen is exemplified by this show at the truly beautiful Grand Bohemian Gallery at El Monte Sagrado Resort in Taos on August 9th. There is common ground between the father and son in that there is a layering of imagery that is both thematic and eclectic. While Tattooing and Post Modern painting both commonly employ the use of composite visualizations, tattooing's reasons are no more or less obscure that those of painting, leaving them open for interpretation and therefore understanding or misunderstanding. The symbol is a metaphor in brief, and metaphors when “mixed” create poetry which is a self defining sensibility. Sharing in it is what they are conceptualizing and conveying.
