New Artists Reveal All at Gallery 114

Contemporary Portland, OR, art gallery, Gallery 114, to host group exhibition of avant-garde artists, showcasing diversity of vision.

Portland, OR, January 27, 2012 --( Gallery 114 is proud to present a group exhibition showcasing its newest artists. "Inside Out: Revelations From Newer Faces" will offer compelling insight into its newest members through a diversity of work and artistic intent.

The exhibit promises to be as diverse as the artists themselves. From unique perspective to method of delivery, Inside Out: Revelations From Newer Faces will deliver a spectrum of mediums and aesthetic sensibilities. Artists Diana Crites, Alana DiCicco, Erin Robinson Grant, Khanh N. Huynh MD, Mary Jo Mann, Christopher B. Mooney, and Curtis Settino will present contemporary works, including: art dolls, abstract, figurative, and narrative paintings (in oil, watercolor, and acrylic), mixed media, and video installation.

Attendees can likewise expect to encounter a spectrum of emotion. While artist Christopher B. Mooney sees his work connected with “comforting thoughts about positive social interactions in a world full of uncertainty, anger, and fearfulness,” artist Erin Robinson Grant seeks to establish a more uneasy, morbid connection. Despite the widely varying presentation and underlying intent, the artistic revelations in this exhibition will help to reveal the common language of human reaction, while previewing the progressive future direction of the gallery.

Inside Out: Revelations From Newer Faces will be on display at Gallery 114 from March 1 - April 1. Please join them on Thursday, March 1, from 6-9 p.m., for the exhibition opening and to meet the artists. Gallery 114 participates in “First Thursday” festivities, previewing art exhibitions showing at downtown art galleries. Gallery 114 is located at 1100 NW Glisan, Portland, Oregon 97209. The reception is free and open to the public.

Gallery 114 is the only established gallery in Portland that has persisted in allowing its artists absolute artistic freedom throughout its 20-year history. Founded in 1990 as an artist collective, Gallery 114 and its members have consistently produced a diversity of artwork.
