A ‘Leap’ of paint
February 22, 2008
"Jumping Over Two Snakes" is a painting that will be part of Brian Kershisnik’s show at the Meyer Gallery, which opens with a reception Feb. 29. The gallery’s owners describe Kershisnik’s paintings as graceful and direct narratives about the human condition. "The notions of Risk, love, nourishment, and family are expressed through his figures and their astonishing predicaments," they explain. Recent themes in Kershisnik’s work include toiling or gardening in the rain, pouring out (or perhaps spilling) milk, and lovers. Kershisnik recently completed a six-month one-man show at the Utah Fine Art Museum in Salt Lake City. His painting, "Lovers Running," is over eleven feet tall and nine feet wide and is currently available in the Meyer Gallery’s collection.

The opening reception for Kershisnik’s show, entitled "Leap," will feature a visit from the artist, and will take place at the Meyer Gallery at 305 Main St. from 6 to 8 p.m.
