  • Description: The Pierro Gallery is pleased to present the fall group exhibition entitled Cut Loose curated by Danielle Masters.

    This exhibition is about one’s ability to let go, be free, and to let your hair down. It will examine the unique ways art shakes up conventional perceptions. The artists on exhibit have manipulated their materials either literally or conceptually by way of cutting, stripping the material away from its original purpose and finding a new context for it. This practice of artistic destruction brings a new life to the original idea, a rebirth into new forms.

    This show will feature sculpture, paintings, photography, installations, and video.
    Artists include:
    Colby Bird, Julia Petra Briggs, Jeffrey Burdian, Samar Hussaini, Danielle Masters, Jen Neal,
    Raymond Saa, Fede Reano, Brian Wondergem, Andrew Zimmerman, Anabella Zubillaga

  • Opening reception at Pierro gallery

    Thursday Sep 21, 2017 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

    The Pierro Gallery is pleased to present the fall group exhibition entitled Cut Loose curated by Danielle Masters.

    This exhibition is about one’s ability to let go, be free, and to let your hair down. It will examine the unique ways art shakes up conventional perceptions. The artists on exhibit have manipulated their materials either literally or conceptually by way of cutting, stripping the material away from its original purpose and finding a new context for it. This practice of artistic destruction brings a new life to the original idea, a rebirth into new forms.

    This show will feature sculpture, paintings, photography, installations, and video.
    Artists include:
    Colby Bird, Julia Petra Briggs, Jeffrey Burdian, Samar Hussaini, Danielle Masters, Jen Neal,
    Raymond Saa, Fede Reano, Brian Wondergem, Andrew Zimmerman, Anabella Zubillaga
