October 17 - November 7, 2009

Oh, MAC. You tantalize us from time to time with truly wonderful shows, then you bring out Maximalist wildlife
paintings, "augmented by carved
pediments installed above the canvas, mixed media dioramas attached
below, and, occasionally, objects dangling in front of the canvas." You run hot and cold and hot again with a bizarre mixture of shows that defies our need to pigeonhole. Always, we are ready to wash our hands of you, and then you turn up on our doorstep with some irresistible bouquet. Also on view will be Fractured Form: Philip Evett and Ansen Seale (curated by Valley House Gallery’s Kevin Vogel); and Collage of Coincidences: Dean Corbitt and Curtis Scott.
