Stella Luminosa

Electric Works presents
Stella Luminosa
December 3 – December 24, 2010
Artist Reception: Friday, December 3, 6-8 PM

Electric Works is pleased to put some sparkle in the season with Stella Luminosa, a group show featuring Dave Eggers, Matt Furie, Ian Huebert, Jason Jägel, Keegan McHargue, Clare Rojas, and Gina Tuzzi. For the month of December the gallery will be populated by characters and landscapes that are both strangely familiar and familiarly strange. The works are distinguished by graphic mark making that evoke at once a childlike enhancement along with adult intrigue and sophistication. Gallery artist Jason Jägel will be taking over the Project Space filling it with an exuberant installation of recent paintings.
