Gallery 128 is proud to announce rEvolution, the midsummer night’s group show opening August 4th through September 4th. Nine artists will be participating in this month-long happening. Presenting - improvisation, collaboration, freedom, fun, fake fur, found objects, found artists, trumpets, guitars, postal codes, hair portraits, cyber-violence, jazz riffs, painted dresses, T-Rex (the band)…and more. Everything is happening!

The self proclaimed Jewdhist Priest, Michelle Blitstein will be making her Gallery Onetwentyeight debut showing her revelatory and intense paintings -The E of K.P. Her obsession with hair has inspired this series of almost hallucinatory portraits. It should be exciting.

The always unpredictable, Sean Fuller will surprise us yet again by exploring the aesthetics of violence in his mixed media collages with empty squares replacing the brutal truth.

Curator, writer, assemblagist, and globally known from Google Maps, Jefre Harwoods, will be premiering the Glam Rock “Paintings” - his bejeweled homage to youth and Roxy Music.

An avid motorboat enthusiast, Anna Murphy-Lang will continue a Fluxus-like take on mail art by sending a new mixed media postcard to the gallery every day from the nation’s capital.

Kaitlin Martin, what can you say about Kaitlin? She is what she is. I’m sure she’ll come up with something. It is what it is - colorful, layered…compelling. Hailing from Staten Island via Columbia, Francisco Osorio will set the urban landscape, and hopefully the gallery, on fire with his vividly colored paintings and small found object sculptures.

The ever elusive, and globetrotting Mary Sobiechowski will be showing some brand new stunning and mysterious New York nightscapes. “Mary, where have you been?”

Rojeh Torosian will take us on a wild ride starting with a “sofa size” landscape
painting and ending in a song. Not quite sure what else will happen, but he’ll almost steal the show with something-or-other.

The mysterious Etna Vesuvius may show her enigmatic sculptures or not. The
less said the better. She can be volcanic, so deal with it. Let’s just say, from an unnamed source, she’s going to show something.

In this month-long exhibition the artists hope to surprise everyone and themselves. Nine artists, so different and so new, come together. rEvolution (#9…#9…#9…) It’s All Happening!
