Three at the CannonSection 4A, The Arts Thursday, February 28th, 2013
What do Gary Dyak, Dick Greene and Robert Treat have in common? A lot as it happens! They are all gay; they are all artists and each is included in the prestigious Cannon Gallery of Art Biennial. In fact they are among 72 artists whose work was selected from more than 1,200 images submitted this year.
All three artists are very engaged in the local LGBT arts scene. Dick Greene in particular is well-known for facilitating AIDS Art Alive some years ago. I was fortunate to have him participate in my own museum project last summer. At the time he spoke of a new project involving drawing on large close-up photographs of cracked concrete and sidewalks. Lo and behold these are the images represented in the show and they look wonderful.
In 14 years, the Cannon Art Gallery Juried Exhibitions have become recognized as one of San Diego County’s most significant showcases for both emerging and mid-career artists who live, work or have a studio in San Diego County.
Jurors represent Southern California’s most prestigious art institutions and the exhibitions are lively, sumptuous and elegant. This year’s jurors for the Biennial were Scott Canty, director of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Chantel Paul, assistant curator of the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in Balboa Park, San Diego.
The exhibitions will be up until March 9.
