Nate Glaspie & Shelby David Meier
Shayne Murphy: Fever Dreaming
March 9 through April 7, 2013
Tonight, 500x Gallery opens two exhibitions: Nate Glaspie & Shelby David Meier and Shayne Murphy: Fever Dreaming. Glaspie and Shelby will be in the downstairs gallery, while Murphy will be in the upstairs gallery. The opening is Saturday, March 9, 2013, from 7 to 10 p.m.
Nate Glaspie and Shelby David Meier’s art addresses issues of consumerism and waste. They are influenced by vacuum-form packaging designs. Glaspie’s series Prop 65 brings to light the unsung designers of corporate America. Meier’s Surrogate Icons and Activities centers around technology, consumption and originality.
Shayne Murphy is a painter who incorporates figures within invented and ambiguous spaces, which invokes a sense of exploration and discovery. Murphy fuses figurative realism with linear abstraction. His interest lie in humankind’s innate curiosity of the unknown and longing for escapism.
Also on view in the Project Spaces are works by Bruce Monroe (downstairs) and a collaboration with Christine Bisetto and Sally Packard (upstairs).
