February 7 – March 4, 2014
While we often judge art by the complexity of the artist’s skills with brushes, pencils or sculpting tools, there are plenty of famous works of art throughout the course of the last century that were hardly touched by the artist.
Whether executed by assistants or presented as readymades,
such artworks question at what point something becomes “art” and what role the artist occupies. Inventor? Designer? Architect? Loakal seeks to explore these questions with a fun, interactive exhibition: second annual “By the Numbers.”
A followup to last year’s widely attended edition, “By the Numbers II” is a paint by numbers style show that immerses the audience in the creative process.
“By the Numbers II” will feature the work of Nite Owl, Lisa Pisa, Reggie Warlock, Egads, Maska, Chris Micro and Chris Granillo
Each artist will present a large scale drawing on panel. It will be up to the audience to fill in the colors of each piece. Art supplies will be provided at the gallery and all ages are welcome. The results of the experiment will be on view at Loakal through the end of the month.
Opening reception: February 7, 6:10 PM
