Fred Stonehouse: The Promise of Distant Things

September 26th, 2015  1:00–4:00

Fred Stonehouse’s paintings are instantly recognizable. Each caricature-cum-dreamscape is simultaneously maudlin, whimsical, and shocking. His work puzzles and intrigues and is not easy, but that is because his mind is like a big sponge wrapped in sticky flypaper. All manner of disparate people, places, artwork, literature, and experiences get stuck in his brain and are absorbed and tumbled around in his dreams. Then they find form in his paintings. The Promise of Distant Things opens at MOWA Saturday, September 26 | 1:00–4:00.
