William Rupnik Gallery is proud to present:
Ales BASK Hostomsky
BOX OF FUN
November 19 – December 11, 2011
Opening Reception: 7-10 PM, Saturday, November 19
Cleveland’s favorite culture-spinning Czech vandal, Ales BASK Hostomsky comes back “home” with a portfolio of brand new, never-before seen, mixed-media works. Throwing innocence and purity right into the meat grinder, BASK’s newest series of portraits are both playful at heart, and sinister by nature. Through these difficult times in which we live, BASK shows us that we can still have fun by manipulating our own realities, even while they constantly change around us. A metaphor… that indicates that in this twisted world, we don’t always come out in the same manner in which we came in.
In commemoration of BASK’s fourth solo exhibition at WRG, the artist has partnered with 1xRun to make available a limited edition print titled, Fun Box Toons. This 24 x 24 in. giclee is printed on 330gsm archival cotton paper and is priced at $75 ea. The edition is available for seven days beginning Tuesday, November 15, and can only be purchased direct from 1xRun.
Please join us for the Box of Fun After-Party, hosted at Lava Lounge, immediately following the gallery reception on November 19. A swank atmosphere with live DJ, sumptuous foods and artfully-crafted drinks welcome gallery show-goers. An exhibition of new artworks from the portfolio, HEAT by Cleveland-based gallery owner and artist William Rupnik will be on view in the downstairs lounge. Lava Lounge is located at 1307 Auburn Avenue, in the historic Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland.
Reception at the Euclid Avenue gallery 7-10 PM, Saturday, November 19. After-party at Lava Lounge 10 PM – ? AM.
