Press Release

Going Places

Jun 17 - Aug 16, 1996


During July and August the George Adams Gallery will show works by gallery artists in a thematic show titled Going Places. The exhibition, which will feature works in all media, includes Robert Arneson, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Jim Barsness, Jose Bedia, Joan Brown, Roy DeForest, Andrew Lenaghan, James McGarrell, Arnaldo Roche, Peter Saul and James Valerio.

The theme of the exhibition is travel to places both real and imagined, and includes images of departure, transportation, the journey, as well as destinations. Works in the exhibition include Bedia's mixed media installation Things that Drag Me Along which formed the centerpiece of his recent exhibition, Barsness' large-scale collage fantasy  Out of the Crib, Lenaghan's miniature views of the beach at Coney Island, Azaceta's sparely painted La Familia Balseros, and Saul's good-naturedly tulmultuous View of San Francisco.
