Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present FOLKLORE, an exhibition of handcrafted works that celebrate the simple and direct experience of visual enjoyment. Curated by gallery artist Evan Hecox (cover artist, August 2012) and featuring artists from the United States, England, and France, FOLKLORE offers a view of contemporary practice that synthesizes art, design, and photography into a new vernacular. Created across a range of media, these works are catchy and infectious like a summer pop song, while drawing viewers into underlying ideas about modern life.

Coinciding with his exhibition at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, the gallery has just released a new Geoff McFetridge print, "Chopping Stripes." We have made no secret that we love the new works from the LA-based McFetridge, and were impressed with his show at Ivory & Black in London this past Fall, and the works at Cooper Cole this month are again quite stunning. This print could make a wonderful holiday gift, hint, hint...
