Michael Brennan: Pandemonium

Opening Reception: March 17, 6 – 10pm

Michael Brennan in collaboration with Martin Muller are pleased to present Pandemonium, an  exhibition consisting of over a hundred of Brennan’s circus-themed paintings and portraits. The exhibit also celebrates the release of a book (Norfolk Press) by the same title, documenting the  full series and accompanied by several critical commentaries. The former San Francisco Chronicle art critic Charles Desmarais shrewdly describes the effect in  his Pandemonium book essay, writing that “Brennan’s technical mastery… confounds, raising a  middle finger to artificial distinctions between art and craft, representation and abstraction.”

Other Exhibition Dates: Friday, March 18, 12 – 6pm 

Saturday, March 19, 12 – 6pm 

Sunday, March 20, 12 – 6pm
