Book Signing

1:00 - 4:00 PM

Wine and refreshments

Merry Karnowsky Gallery has made arrangements to have a number of advanced copies of Kent Williams' new book Eklektikos available on the closing day of the artist's exhibition Convergence. Kent will be available from 1 - 4 PM this Saturday, June 18th to chat and dedicate his new monograph.

The gallery is pleased to offer a free exhibition poster for each book purchase, as well as a free poster for the first 35 people in attendance.

Following his much anticipated monograph Amalgam released in 2007, Eklektikos features paintings created over the past four years including a number of the works in the current exhibition.

Los Angeles art critic Peter Frank explains in his essay from the book, "To view a Kent Williams painting is to believe yourself in it – or, more precisely, to believe yourself in it and out of (if near) it at the same time, suspended between levels of reality just as the paintings’ subjects clearly are. These are not pictures to look at from a safe remove; they are conditions – physical conditions, spatial conditions, mental conditions, emotional conditions, human conditions. And these conditions affect all who witness them, whether in them or before them. They have to: they speak to us of us, and must do so about us, not merely at us."

If you cannot attend, please call the gallery at 323.933.4408 to reserve a signed copy.
