Mixed Red: Scott Hunter at Tomayko Gallery

 A selection of new mixed media work by Scott Hunter and starring the color red. Work made by responding to the spark that comes from recognition of similarity or sympathy demanding placement above or below.  Scaled up or scaled down, impatient, messy, explained, self-explanatory, self-congratulatory, framed and then finished. Work steeped in the mysteries of random pairings of images found in everyday detritus.  Forging connections that might offer deeper introspection than a contrived plot when looking back upon them as if planned. 

 Read or misread.

This exhibition is on view to the public from August 16-December 8, 2019.

AAP will be hosting an artist talk and reception on October 8th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm as part of the Allegheny Regional Asset District’s 2019 RADical Days. Drinks and light snacks will be provided.
