"Going Out of Business Sale" A Retrospective: Tom Vail
September 15 - November 11, 2018Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, 210 N Santa Fe Ave., Pueblo, CO
Vail was born in Hollywood, CA in 1946. He says in his artist statement, “Writing about my art work is an exercise I find difficult. I could go into the formal aspects of my art but the most important part is unexplainable. In the collages, a dark humor about the human condition seems to be a recurring element — the use of collage to attack bourgeois values with its own propaganda images. The kinetic photographs explore the space-time dynamics using the female figure as subject.” The images were printed using photo, silkscreen, hand-tint prints, and archival digital prints. Galleries are open Wed-Sat 11AM-4PM & Sun 12-4PM. $8 / $6 Children, Seniors 65+, military. Members free.
