The DIY Gallery (which took over Bandit on Sunset Boulevard), is hosting a new show with an opening reception coming up on Saturday, August 14. The gallery will be presenting David Yow’s one-man exhibition of paintings, collage and digital drawings starting Saturday through September 11.
There’s been a lot of excitement revolving around this show. David Yow is not only a cool artist, he is the former frontman for Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid, and Qui. The show at DIY Gallery in Echo Park is his first solo art exhibit and will be presenting (we’ve heard he will be there for the opening) his new collection of work along with a limited edition of posters for sale benefiting Eagles of Death Metal bassist Brian O’Connor, who is undergoing treatment for cancer.
According to the press release, the artwork in the show “are rooted in Yow’s personal and psychological history, and feature a broad spectrum of mediums. From acrylic, pencil, charcoal, crayon, hair, bugs, collage, and tar on wood, to line drawings digitally combined with photographic textures, Yow reveals an uncommon artistic perspective.”
In addition to the exhibit, the DIY back patio will host drinks and projections, along with musical performances to be determined.
Opening Reception: Saturday August 14, 2010 from 7:00 pm-11:00 pm.
The exhibition continues through September 11, with a special event TBA for closing night.
