domesticates : new work by grant gilliland

We are pleased to present Domesticates, a solo show featuring new works by San Francisco artist Grant Gilliland aka The Gross Uncle.

Domesticates will feature portraits of animals and their two-legged friends, more commonly referred to as human beings. It also marks Grant's first-ever solo show of new works. This painter and illustrator's cutely grotesque renderings in vibrant color combinations have graced our walls for a couple of years now so we're excited to have him put together an entire collection.

Domesticates will be on exhibit from June 20 through July 18. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 20, from 7pm-10pm, so please come on by!
