Please join us this Saturday, July 30th from 6pm-10pm for the Opening Reception of
Living Conditioned New Works by Ben Horton and Jon Strieby.
About Ben Horton
Ben Horton first gained notoriety through graphics he created for skateboard decks - himself a skateboarder, with over 15 years of disservice to his joints. Horton's ideas come from photographs and his life experiences. The people that inhabit Horton's canvases have an indefinable connection, something gleaned from their expressions or eyes. There is richness and a familiarity in his cast of characters. Birds are a common theme, swooping and soaring throughout the foregrounds and backgrounds of the works. He exploits his artistic talents on various mediums such as canvas, paper, and wood using acrylics, house paints, ink, and sharpie pens...whatever is lying around and easily available to him.

About Jon Strieby
Jon Strieby jokingly describes himself as a jack-of-all-trades, but master of none. He works with various materials and mediums. His powerful draftsmanship isn't always relegated to two dimensions. His subjects might grace a skateboard deck, or be carved in wood or cut from steel.
