Distinction Gallery presents Shay DavisJuxtapoz // Saturday, 09 Apr 2011
Distinction Gallery and ArtHatch unveil new artworks by Shay Davis tonight, Saturday, April 9, entitled Shay's Inferno: The Sins and Virtues of Modern Man. The San Diegan artist uses his imagination, playfulness, and own internal challenges to provide powerful emotional responses to a world of real and fantasy stimuli. Winning numerous awards, like the ’92 Gold Medal at the New York Art Show, his original works are collected by the likes of art lovers Tony Hawk, Halle Berry, Jayne Seymour, and Greg Allman.
Coinciding with the show is the premier screening of Shay Vision, a new film documenting Davis, his art, inspiration, and process, at Birch North Park Theatre. Distinction's opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2011 from 6–10 pm with live Mmusic by Paul Cannon and complimentary Stone Brewery beer and Wines Family Cellars wine.
