Ellwood T. Risk: “A History of Violence” Exhibition
This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.
“A History of Violence was not the show I had planned on exhibiting for my 4th installment at Robert Berman Gallery. I’d been working on a new series (The Bomb Squad) and had intended to produce works from that effort. In light of the gun violence that has continued to be a part of our day to day reality and the record breaking mass shooting in Orlando, I felt compelled to make some type of comment regarding the topic of gun violence in America. My work has often found itself in accidental conversation with such issues, but this show will be my first attempt at directly addressing them. I’m not anti-2nd Amendment, but I am pro-common sense.” – Ellwood T. Risk
A History of Violence will feature many of the (LA and New York Times) front pages from shooting tragedies in years past and the present. There will be an opening reception on Saturday September 10, 2016 from 5-8pm. Exhibition will be from September 10 until October 8, 2016.
