At Gallery X, Relatively Abstract Exhibition by Jason Paschal

Gallery X is becoming a second home for my art, and I'm proud to display some of my abstract works during their Relatively Abstract exhibition. I've chosen to submit some of my older works, one of which I began prior to going to school for art. If you have an opportunity to visit, I'd love to see what you think of my pieces and other submissions there.

Running July 1 to July 29, Gallery X is located at 169 William St, New Bedford, MA

Stream-of-Conciousness and more, Warwick Public Library by Jason Paschal

For the third year in a row, I'm happy to have my work hanging at the Warwick Public Library, this year featuring my Stream-of-Conciousness series as well as a variety of abstracts I've worked on in the past. Additionally, the centerpiece is the collaborative work with Robert Welch, Founder (Badly Kept Secrets). 

This exhibition of my work runs for the entire month of July 2018 at Warwick Public Library, located at 600 Sandy Ln, Warwick, RI.

At Gallery X, Something Fishy Exhibition by Jason Paschal

Once again I'm happy to be a part of a Gallery X exhibition, "Something Fishy". Themed around the oceanic and aquatic lifeforms, I decided to make a beachside landscape with a variety of colored samplings from magazines and sand from the local beach. 

While the process of making this exposed me to natural light and pretty much instantaneously gave me a sunburn, I'm looking forward to making more landscapes, abstract or otherwise. Always open to suggestions for landscapes that I should explore real or otherwise!

 

Running May 30 to July 1, Gallery X is located at 169 William St, New Bedford, MA.

At Gallery X, Urban Decay Exhibition by Jason Paschal

I'm happy to be showing at Gallery X again, this time at their Urban Decay exhibition. I was lucky enough to attend the opening exhibition and see everyone's wildly different interpretations of urban decay. For my own submissions I was happy to submit my own "cityscape" series that I had been working on, Imaginary Places #1 and #2, seen below.

Running April 4 to April 29, Gallery X is located at 169 William St, New Bedford, MA.

At the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, In the Groove Exhibition by Jason Paschal

Brooklyn. I'm beyond excited to be a part of the In the Groove series at the upcoming exhibition over at the BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition) with my conceptual album cover for the song Those Who Can't, Cheat by the artist Clarence Clarity. 

By no means is it an official album cover, simply one that formed to the tune of one song that I really love, but that notwithstanding, album covers (and music) has always provided a major inspiration for my work, many of which are named for lyrics in songs or at least allude to music in some fashion.

The cover is an amalgam of my Stream-of-Consciousness series, which I feel is all too appropriate. Then again, my interpretation of the music may differ from yours. I highly suggest you check out the song/music video/artist and of course the exhibition.

Below are my 3 submissions, all of which I enjoyed making, personally, with the first of the three being the art to be featured at the BWAC.

Running May 12th to October 28th the In the Groove exhibition will be located at the BWAC exhibition space, located at 481 Van Brunt, Door 7, Van Brunt Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn, 11231, in the pre-Civil War warehouse overlooking the Statue of Liberty.

At the Unnatural Symmetry Exhibition with the Rochester Collage Society by Jason Paschal

Two of my Stream-of-Consciousness collages are being featured by the Rochester Collage Society in Rochester, NY as a part of their Unnatural Symmetry exhibition. I've been delving heavily into collage of late and I'm proud to be a part of a collage-specific exhibition.

This will be the first exhibition I'll likely to be unable to physically attend, which is both a bad thing and a good thing. One one side, obviously, I won't be able to meet other collage artists and see my work on display, but on the good it means that my art is making it further and further away from me.

Running February 22nd to February 24th, the Unnatural Symmetry exhibition is located at 50-52 Public Market Way, Rochester, NY.

Stream-of-Consciousness Collages by Jason Paschal

The last few weeks have been great when it comes to actually creating art. I've had that burst of creative energy that has me constantly on the lookout for opportunities to make something. With that energy comes far too many ideas that I can actually produce when I'm doing analog art. 

I had an idea to combine these short little stream-of-consciousness non-sequiturs with these ad-hoc collages. I was really into the idea, so I decided that I'd make some digital collages and I've immediately fallen in love with doing it.

I've put my art up in the Warwick Public Library the last two years, and I've signed up to do so again in 2018. What I'd really like to do is make a whole series of these, enough that it could potentially occupy the whole wall. It's a really big wall, though, so perhaps I should just enjoy the process of making these instead of worrying where they might be seen.
