DEMO Project Closing Reception This Friday: Dominic Paul Moore
As detailed in the recent Illinois Times cover story on the state of the arts, Springfield is increasingly becoming a destination for artists from around the region and the world. Nowhere is this the case more than at the DEMO Project, located on the campus of the Springfield Art Association. Tonight is the opening reception of a new exhibition of paintings by Chicago-based artist Dominic Paul Moore, who has previously had prestigious showings in San Francisco and St Louis along with having been owner and director of the innovative, now defunct, Ebersmoore gallery in Chicago.
The exhibit closing tonight (rescheduled after the opening was cancelled due to bad weather) is called have it say this somewhere... and according to Moore's statement in a press release these paintings "involve missteps and potential undoings. The act, at some point, reaches a conclusion and there is a thing there to look at. My distrust is, I'm not so sure this painting or that painting matters to be better or worse than the one before it or the one following it. There is no presiding work that tells you how to read it. There comes the joy in making.”
The reception is Friday, January 10 from 6 PM - 9PM at DEMO Project, 732 N. Fourth Street.
