Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Camille Rose Garcia: Ambien Somnambulants
Solo Exhibition

Panorama Project III: 134 artists, one continuous piece
Group Show curated by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens

September 6 thru October 4, 2008



Artistic luminaries poured into Jonathan LeVine Gallery on Friday for a VIP preview of Camille Rose Garcia's (Juxtapoz cover #62) Ambien Somnambulants running along side the Panoramic Project III curated by artists Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens.

Rose Garcia's first New York solo show in two years was met with much deserved excitement. The new large-scale pieces are far more colorful than her prior work, depicting some familiar characters frolicking amidst surreal landscapes. The artist also included a series of framed acrylic work on paper, each with black and purple renditions of creatures sprinkled with sparkly love and done in her familiar dripping paint style.

In the other gallery space, LeVine hosts one long painting composed of a works by 134 different artists including Matt Leines, the Clayton Brothers, and Jonathan Viner. Put together by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens, the panoramic piece comes off like a who's who in the modern art world and guests had a blast trying to guess who the artists were without looking at the list.

The preview party was packed with everyone from Ron English to Eric White. Gary Baseman and Tim Biskup strolled in together and mingled with Camille as LeVine played his role as host with a smile. The event was a success, as most of Garcia's work sold out (many in advance of the show) and the party raged on well past the gallery's normal 9pm curfew.

The show is running through October 4, 2008. For more information visit
