James Meyer, Culture Hero 2, 2008, Ink and gesso on paper, 30 x 44 inches

Culture Hero“, a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by veteran artist James Meyer opens, Thursday January 8 in New York City at the Morgan Lehman Gallery in the Chelsea arts district. It is not to be missed.

A unique body of work, the “Culture Hero” exhibit features pieces in black and white that are reminiscent of constellations in space. Imagine lying on a hill one dark evening staring into the stars and you see a boy crying, then another child shushing you and yet another, balancing on a rope.

Emotions work in complex ways that as adults we often fail to acknowledge. The open hearts of children frequently show us how precious every instinctive state of mind is. They also show us the joy in being. This presentation of seemingly simple content is in actuality revealing of the challenges of being an adult in todays culture. We all need a hero, why not our own inner child?

AFTERGLOW : Prints for for sale

Prints for PICA is a fundraiser, fueled by artists in the name of art. Every year artists convene, print, meet each-other, risk certain embarrassment, rise and fall, push around the ink, crank the presses, and create inspired work with a sense of immediacy and purpose both endearing and awe inspiring.

Now that the dust has settled, they have had the opportunity to take stock of what was created. Hundreds of prints came off the presses, and hundreds have been purchased by hungry collectors. Each is $100 and all of the proceeds go to support PICA’s artistic programming.

In fact, as you make your last minute purchases think of walking into a local gallery or shop and purchase work by your local artists. What you give this season matters.

Take a look at some of the inventory on Flickr, and send an email to vic [at] pica.org or call 503.242.1419 x225 if you are interested in purchasing a print. You can also come by and visit the PICA offices at 224 NW 13th Ave #305 Portland 97209 (located inside the Wieden+Kennedy building).

Viewing hours are as follows:
10 am – 6 pm Tuesday, December 16 though Thursday, December 18;
12 – 4 pm Friday, December 19 and Monday and Tuesday, December 22 – 23

For an additional $75 – $150 get your print matted, framed and wrapped in time for the holidays!
