Event description

Description

"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger." (Buddha)

Opening Reception: 9PM
After Party: 10PM

Featured Artists:
Will “Topiltzin” Sanchez
Laura & Gary Dumm

Info:
Although anger may seem to bring destruction, Will Sanchez sees it as the opposite. “People see anger as something they need to get rid of or something that they need to control, whereas it helps us, actually, to create,” says the artist and owner of Gallery 1299. Sanchez grapples with abuse and loss in his own life with a series of 6-by-9-foot paintings in oil, acrylic, crayon and chalk that highlight different aspects of anger, from fury to wrath. “I go back and think of different things that made me angry or affected my emotions to the point that they were out of control,” he says. The exhibit features other artists channeling their frustrations such as Gary and Laura Dumm who take on Donald Trump with a 30-by-30-inch bright acrylic caricature. “Art is not just there to look at,” says Sanchez. “It’s therapeutic to the artist, and it’s therapeutic to the [viewer].”
