John Knuth: The Dawn
May 15 - July 3
Hollis Taggart is pleased to present John Knuth: The Dawn at its Southport location.
For the exhibition, Los Angeles-based artist John Knuth continues his formal and conceptual exploration and play with unorthodox materials and approaches. The Dawn will include new paintings and ostrich egg sculptures created through his signature flyspeck technique as well as new works that feature horseshoe crab shells. Together, the objects in Knuth’s forthcoming show capture his vision of rebirth and reawakening as the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccines brings new hope for an emergence from the pandemic. The Dawn will remain on view through July 3, 2021 at Hollis Taggart’s gallery in Southport, which is housed in an historic building at 330 Pequot Avenue. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Satruday: 9:30-4:30.
