Bryan Robertson: Altar of Commerce opens Saturday, July 22 with an artist’s reception from 5-8 pm at Cathy Gregory

Bryan Robertson explores the overwhelming commercialism of life in America and the absurdity of the industrial complex – “medicated” food, technology run amok and the games we play at the altar of commerce. His symbolism and style suggests the peril as well as the irony of the power of corporate control and its out-of-touch behavior based solely on financial gain.

Bryan Robertson works primarily with paint on canvas and digital imagery. Influenced by both abstract and figurative surrealism Robertson uses a process of chance and collage to show multiple ideas at one time. In addition to the intuitive side of action and memory he is also interested in a shared nostalgia. This leads Robertson to depict the logos and ideologies of consumerism as an invasive force upon the inner psyche.

Variation and Adaptations, on display 6/2/17 through 7/29/17, is an exhibit curated by Artists First, an organization that has long worked to promote the artwork of individuals challenged by physical or psychological obstacles. While typically judged by society as impaired, this organization advocates for these artists to be considered as equal, not other, within the visual art community by their unique perspectives and life experiences. Angela Gipson, Jeff Johnson, and Jimmy Holmes will each present a body of work specific to their use of media and focused examinations.

“We’ve always done what we wanted and how we wanted,” says Violent Femmes’ Gordon Gano says. “Fundamentally there’s no difference from then until now. It’s a natural continuation.”

 

Violent Femmes’ ninth studio album and first full-length collection in more than 15 years, WE CAN DO ANYTHING may well be part of a long musical continuum but it is also among the most provocative and playful in the legendary band’s remarkable canon. As the title makes plain, founding Femmes Gano (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Brian Ritchie (acoustic bass guitar, vocals) remain intrepid as ever before, traversing infinite genre and emotion via their immediately identifiable mash of rambunctious folk, minimalist punk, cubist blues, cosmic jazz, and back porch rock ‘n’ roll.

 

“What the Femmes are,” says Ritchie, “and I think we always have been, is a repository for American roots music. Most people think of us as a kind of rock band but we’re a lot more than that and I think this album represents all that in a really natural, cohesive way. It just flows smoothly between all these ideas.”
