Mixed Greens Presents 6 New York Artists
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Saturday, July 13, 2002, 6-8 p.m.
Exhibition runs July 20, 2002
June 7, 2002—Mixed Greens, a New York City-based artist-management company, is bringing the work of six New York artists to Houston for one week in July. The show will have its opening on Saturday, July 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. Visitors can also view the show during its regular hours, July 13 through 20, from 10 to 6 p.m. or by appointment. The arts advisory company MKG Arts Management is generously hosting the exhibition in their space at 2825 Colquitt on Houston’s “Gallery Row.”
Although the six artists represented are just a handful of the more than 30 artists Mixed Greens represents, they exemplify the richness and stylistic diversity of their roster. Christina Mazzalupo paints lush, colorful, surreal canvases; installation artist Zoe Pettijohn brings textile art into the 21st century; photographer and sculptor Alyson Shotz explores technology and its impact on the natural world; photographer Lee Stoetzel uses sleight of hand to create breathtaking landscapes that are simultaneously real and fake; sculptor and photographer Julianne Swartz makes art out of natural and artificial light; and Dirk Westphal creates arresting photographs of strangely beautiful, mutant tropical fish.
Mixed Greens is a company devoted to bringing the work of emerging artists to the general public. On our website, www.mixedgreens.com, we not only sell curated artwork, but we also show brief digital documentaries about our artists, and provide information about upcoming art events, artists’ works-in-progress, and collecting. We are constantly finding new ways to integrate art into everyday life, in the certainty that everyone can enjoy art, and that everyone can benefit from the process of its creation. We are excited to have the opportunity to show our artists in Texas, and grateful to our hosts at MKG.
