We're really excited to have the next Bakery artist grace are walls in October.
Young Jonathan Stewart will be here (in art form only) throughout October and November displaying his amazing Screen Printed boxes in his solo show entitled Blockism.
Jonathan is currently located down near the Dallas / Fort Worth area finishing his Masters degree at the University of Dallas. It's a swell program with great facilities, a top notch Instructor (one Mr. Juergen Strunck) and talented candidates. Honest truth, We saw it with our own eyes!
I apologize in advance for the tiny images, but we here at the Bakery are having some minor technology glitches. Needless to say if you come over and see these suckers in person you will not be disappointed (unless you're THAT type of person in which case there is just no pleasing you.)
(imagine these as three dimensional objects)
Now imagine that they are funny...
and then you realize they are heart-wrenching.
Now don't you want to share that feeling in a large group during an Opening surrounded by Stewarts work? You better believe you do! (If you were asking for our two cents.)
Here's a few brief words from Jonathan himself:
I am primarily concerned with how history, experiences, and emotions are packaged for consumption. My boxes point toward a marketplace where these characteristics are bought and sold.
So by now you are saying "Enough Jibber Jabber!" and we agree. Here's the dirty details...
