Fugue State by Zack Stadel

Interesting concept.  Cull old acetates from vintage porn, rework with a little mat board, printers ink and such then voila a new piece of art.  This is the subject of an art exhibit and artists reception I’ve been invited to this weekend. Sounds titillating enough now if I can free up my calender…and be in the Glasell Park area.

The Route 66 Gallery is holding true to its promise of new themed shows opening every 6 weeks.  The theme this time around is “Art That Haunts You”.  It is unjuried and open to the artist’s own interpretation of what is haunting.  There will be approximately a dozen artists showing 36 pieces that they believe fit the theme.


The reception will be held in the Route 66 Gallery in Monrovia’s Historic Aztec Hotel.  It will feature your basic munchies and wine. Of course the best part is this is all FREE!  If you desire stronger drinks feel free to walk across the lobby of the hotel to the Brass Elephant Bar to purchase something stronger.  

The image “Arched Walkway” is one of the pieces I will have in the show (yes, this is a little self-promotion).  It is a High Dynamic Range image that was generated with the use of the Photomatix HDR and tone-mapping programs.

Details: Saturday 10/18 5PM-9PM.  311 W Foothill Blvd, Monrovia CA 91016.  MAP LINK HERE
