Drawamalgs @ 1305






Opening Final Friday, August 28th is Drawamalgs, new work by David Jarred.

The exhibition continues through September 19th, with an opening reception on Final Friday, August 28th from 6-11 pm.
Drawamalgs showcases the intriguing visual language of local artist David Jarred, who brings his intuitively generated shapes and forms into focus at 1305 Gallery. His subjects are both recognizable and instantly strange, like deja vu or a visit to some lost place from your childhood. Architectural and mechanical forms saturate our daily lives in contemporary society, the digesting of this landscape ever apparent in Jarred's amalgamations or Drawamalgs. The artist's personality and aesthetic are the filter through which the almagamation takes place, therefore allowing these aspects of himself to be reflected in the work.

Come meet the artist and see the work on Final Friday!
We'll be here from 6-11 that night with food and friends! Regular gallery hours resume for the run of the show: Tues-Sat/ 11-3.

See you soon!
