A Tour of ‘Quit Your Sobbing And Call Me in the Afternoon’

Saturday night I headed out to New Image Art Gallery to check out the newest show by Anthony Lister. The show is called Quit Your Sobbing And Call Me in the Afternoon, and I have to admit, I was expecting a little more. I’ve been to about 4 or 5 shows at the New Image, and usually there’s a ton of art, Swoon and Neckface being two prime examples. But Lister’s only had 4 paintings in the main room, a bunch of masks tied together, and the a performer in a small room which seemed to have more art in than the rest. Nonetheless, I’d say it was pretty rad to see his art up close. His paintings were beautiful, and it was really cool to see the brush strokes and splatters in the art. There were also a ton of great little details hidden all over the space, so it was fun trying to find them as well.

I took a bunch of photos as I usually do, but instead of posting them to my Flickr, I decided to edit together a video of the show. I’d love to know what you guys think of this. I hosted the video on Flickr, which means that it could be a maximum of 90 seconds long, so that was a fun limitation. I can still post the photos if you all would like, just leave me a comment and let me know! I hope you enjoy it!
