At Gallery 114

Thu, Mar 07 to Sat, Mar 30


David Slader and Owen Carey

For March 2019, Gallery 114 presents InkBodySkinPaint+Fire, a joint show featuring the decorated and tattooed human figure, featuring painter David Slader and photographer Owen Carey.

The theme for the show was sparked by a remark that the figures in Slader’s paintings were tattooed. Carey picked up on that thread, creating a series of intimate portraits of people whose body art is their personal journal, expressing their intimate stories, traumas and yearnings.
The artists will host a preview reception at 7:00 p.m on March 6th. The show opens on First Thursday, March 7th, 3-9:00pm, and runs through March 30th. Gallery hours are Thursday – Sunday, noon-6:00pm.
Each of Carey’s models has a personal story of perseverance and is available for interviews.
Three special events are scheduled during the run of InkBodySkinPaint+Fire.
Risk/Reward will present an experimental performance during the show’s First Thursday opening, March 7, 2019. Tattoo-clad performers will pose as live art models while telling stories of the inspirations behind their tattoos, lending a living, beating heart to the works on the gallery walls. Performance happens intermittently between 6:30-8:30pm.
The Importance of Being Frank, a one-person performance by Rusty Tennant – Artistic Director of Fuse Theatre Ensemble and a featured model in InkBodySkinPaint+Fire – explores the theses that Shakespeare was gay. Tennant takes their audience on a fast-paced exploration of the mysteries surrounding the greatest playwright of all time on Saturday, March 16 at 4:00pm. (Donations accepted.)
The Invisibility of Visibility, literary readings by members of the Street Roots vendor community, will take place Tuesday, March 26, 6-7:30pm. Sponsors include Street Roots, Gallery 114 and the Pearl District Neighborhood Association.
