Layers – A Collaborative Art Show by Paul Wilm & Peter Wilm

Manitou Supply Presents:

LAYERS – A Collaborative Art Show by Paul Wilm & Peter Wilm

Some have said that Birmingham artists and brothers Peter and Paul Wilm’s styles are like night and day. If that’s so, then this particular exhibit occurs somewhere at twilight. It’s all in the layers. 

Hiding inside Peter’s fantastical, dream-like compositions (which are usually strictly black and white) are Paul’s signature intensely colorful housepaint-on-found-wood and random collage, flowing like an undercurrent. The end result feels oddly complete and strangely satisfying to the eye.

Come see for yourself!

Opening night: Saturday July 13th, 6pm.

Space One Eleven has invited artist Larry Jens Anderson to guest curate “the BOMB.” The exhibition will explore ways artists have been processing this subject as a response to historic and current events. It is by using camp humor, plays on words, ironic twists and other creative methodologies that these artists have arrived at images.

 

Born two years after the atomic bombs were dropped in Japan, Anderson grew up in the age of “duck and cover” and bomb shelters. Anderson notes that in his adulthood, he is now concerned about suicide bombers, IEDs, school bombings, who has a nuclear bomb and the fact they should not have one, and that his concern of this daily news is not unique to him.

 

The exhibition will be on display through March 1, 2019.

 

Larry Jens Anderson was born and lived his first eighteen years in the rural community of Randall, Kansas—population seventy-five. Anderson is retired from teaching art in Atlanta colleges for over 30 years, SCAD Atlanta for 6 years and the Atlanta College of Art before that.  Along with his teaching, he has exhibited extensively. His drawings, paintings, videos, installations touching on human rights issues have been exhibited in such important institutions as the National Museum of Australia, is in the Museum of Modern Art’s book collection, and are included in such local collections as the High Museum of Art plus the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. In addition to his career as an artist and instructor, Anderson was a founding member of TABOO, an artist collective that existed for eleven years curating, producing events, and exhibiting.
