perhaps we meet opens

A friendly crowd braved the holiday schedule for a wonderful opening reception at BoxoFFICE. The exhibition, titled perhaps we meet, features works by artists with strong connections to Joshua Tree, CA and Marfa TX - an exploration of what non-urban centers of creativity inspire.

Artists Randy Polumbo and David Goodman turned out and Diane Best, Tina Bluefield and John Luckett were here in spirit. Diane Best held a simultaneous opening for a group exhibition, Sparse, at The Joshua Tree Art Gallery.

A baby, a puppy and some hip young things rounded out the crowd (you know who you are). The exhibition continues until February 5th 2011.

Saturday October 2, 2010 saw a lively crowd at BoxoFFICE gathered for the opening of China Adams and Almond Zigmunds' joint exhibition. Two site-specific installations, one by each artist, have transformed the space at BoxoFFICE and the guests were intrigued by these as well as by the accompanying paintings and drawings.

Alan Emtage Repetition and Recollection

Thursday February 4 was the opening of Alan Emtage's first solo exhibition, Repetition and Recollection.

A large group of friends and fans turned out to toast the show and take in its intriguing images.

The works consider
how we construct a reality based on a synthesis of analytical thought and sensory perception, and invites us to consider how our model of being effects the world around us.
