Photos: Find A Flying Motorcycle And A 50-Foot Painting At Mad Art Gallery
Mad Art Gallery lived up to its name this past weekend, hosting a duo show entitled TRACES, showcasing the work of St. Louisan Jacob Berkowitz and New Yorker Hubert Dobler. Both artists brought their A-game: Berkowitz, a member of the Screwed Arts Collective, created a large-scale (50 feet to be exact) monochromatic abstract painting created using his signature dry brush technique, while Dobler showcased in the medium he knows best—motorcycles—via large-scale pieces and a big twist: a motorcycle that was released unmanned while being suspended from the ceiling. Danger aside (guests had to sign a waiver to view the indoor demonstration), the event was packed with the who’s who of the young St. Louis art scene right alongside some of the biggest, long-term supporters, kicking off a new season of arts on a high note. View the pieces through March 19, when a closing reception will take place from 7-11pm.
