Las Vegas, NV – October 19, 2011 — Brett Wesley Gallery is celebrating the opening exhibition of Stream of Consciousness featuring Dutch artist/designer Jonny Detiger. Opening and artist reception will be Thursday November 3, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 1112 S. Casino Center Blvd. This event is free to the public. The artist will also be available for meet & greet on First Friday for 6-9pm. The exhibition will run through November 26, 2011.
In the hands of New York artist Jonny Detiger, conversations, chance encounters, thoughts and projections merge into a happy, delirious stream of consciousness strewn across the canvas. Through a mix of paintings and moving sculptures this work explores human interactions through a kaleidoscope of iconic imagery, text, color and light.
Jonny Detiger is an artist and designer who through his work, has explored the understanding and communication of the human condition of happiness. Through the use of shape, sound, smell and color he designs living art environments that heighten this positive state of mind.
Detiger received his degree in Industrial Management from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. He is a Dutch, self-taught artist that lives and works in New York City. He has been painting and designing since the early 90’s and has collectors from Spain, Holland, Norway, Germany, and through out the United States.
“I believe that art = living and living = art. I think you should infuse all aspects of life with the same passion and creativity as making art,” comments Jonny.
Brett Wesley Gallery holds art receptions once a month on the Thursday just prior to the First Friday of the month at 1112 S. Casino Center Blvd. on the corner of Charleston Blvd. The gallery building itself is a nod to mid-century modernism, urban chic and classic American roadside architecture.
What makes Brett Wesley Gallery distinctive is its selection of stunning works by emerging and established painters, photographers, and sculptors from Las Vegas and around the world. Owner Brett Wesley Sperry states “Our primary goal is to show works of art that are bold, relevant, and well-crafted across several media and ultimately expand the visual dialog among collectors and artists. Brett Wesley Gallery is a place to celebrate the arts and share knowledge with art collectors, fans and artists alike. And each month, whether you love what we’re showing or not, there will always be something here that’s memorable and worthy of discussion”.
