Jessie Mott - New Drawings - Friday, August 23, 2019 - 6 to 9pm

   On Friday, August 23rd Las Manos will be showing new drawings by Jessie Mott. Please join us from 6 to 9pm for a reception to celebrate Jessie's new work. 
   Jessie once again engages her exceptional drawings skills to summon 'creatures' that evoke whimsy and nightmares in the same drawing. Her use of mixed media and her skillful color sense is always impressive. It will be a casual presentation. The drawings will be unframed and tacked on the wall but the range of inventiveness is astonishing.

Polar Vortex Work From Michael McGuire

Michael McGuire made a series of drawings while staying at home during the recent Polor Vortex last week. Small and time consuming these drawings were the perfect antidote to the winds and sub-zero temperatures outside.

Bobby Get Down Brown

Las Manos will have an irregular schedule over the Holidays. Michael is heading out of town through New Years but Michelle promises to come in on the weekends. It never hurts to call ahead to be sure someone is in the gallery before heading up to Andersonville; 773.728.8910

In the meantime a few new Bobby Brown portraits. Bobby is a neighborhood artist who has had a career in the music business but now pursues painting as a creative endeavor.  And we very much enjoy his paintings too; joyful, clever and witty. We now have a collection of his portraits on the wall of the gallery which we are hoping to keep together as a group.
