Worth a Thousand Words
New Works by David "Netherland" van Alphen
May 12-June 3, 2018
BYOB Opening Reception
Saturday, May 12, 7-10pm
We're excited to be welcoming back our good friend and former Rotofugi Gallery curator David "Netherland" van Alphen for a new exhibit opening this coming Saturday!
Artist David "Netherland" van Alphen lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. Though David's family was from Holland, he was born in Toronto, and has been in Chicago for the last thirteen years.
Being a child of the 70's has influenced him greatly and is reflected in most of his work. Juxtaposing images, his color choices and the new modern context comes through his nostalgic imagery and helps to isolate and enhance them into a beautiful montage.
David does not resize, photocopy or scan any of the images he uses. All images are cut directly from their original source and and pieced together to keep each piece unique. David has shown at many galleries throughout the U.S. and sold out his first solo show in January 2008.
Join us the evening of Saturday, May 12, 7-10pm for the opening reception. Many of the artists will be in attendance, plus we’ll have snacks and sodas available (BYOB if you want to have alcohol) and music by the always entertaining DJ Sean Doe.
For BYOB, we are steps away from Beermiscuous, one of Chicago's best craft beer shops — 350 cold beers and ciders (over 200 local beers!) are available in a singles format, allowing you to create your own mix-and-match variety pack for the event!
The exhibit continues through June 3, 2018.
