ART OPENING: BOB BRANAMAN & CATHY WEISS: Song of Songs, Paintings and Prints
Beyond Baroque's Artist-in-Residence debuts his latest paintings and prints. BOB BRANAMAN's tremendous body of
work includes etchings, paintings, films, books, and most recently a series of paintings and prints concerning regeneration
and love. Bob was one of the innovative artists showing at the legendary Batman Gallery in San Francisco.
His films include Ginsberg (1966) and Goldmouth (1965) starring Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
CATHY WEISS makes marks by drawing with her
gouges on wood. She then prints, paints, and layers her images to respond
to the physical, spiritual and psychological
interstices we experience. In this new work she explores the ancient love poetry in
the Song of Songs.
Art exhibit runs in the Mike Kelley Gallery through Saturday, October 4. Reception is free to all.
