August could turn out to be a vintage month for Gigantic Gallery. We culled work by eight artists, both home-grown and imported, for a show entitled Terroirism: landscapes & other fertile fields, and the result is a robust blend of aesthetic profiles sure to delight any discerning palate.

Because the show combines a spectrum of styles, the viewer's initial impression might be one of divisive variety, as if the show's cohesion suffers from uncareful picking. But if one allows it to steep, the entwined and complementary aspects of each component bloom in the eye. Anne Jankowski's limning of mid-summer is highlighted by the pyrography of Thomas Malcolm Cook. Christian Villacillo's geometrics find a congruence in the surreal architecture of Drew Etienne, and their gravitas is answered by levity in the pop sensibilities of Jon Carling and Ian Seniff.

Terroirism: landscapes & other fertile fields harvests paintings, prints, and encaustic from Jon Carling, Thomas Malcolm Cook, Drew Etienne, Anne Jankowski, Karl Kaiser, Ian Seniff, Siolo Thompson, and Christian Villacillo.

Please join us for the opening on Thursday, August 2nd, starting at 5:30. The show will run through Sunday, September 2nd.
