"Messin with the Masters" - Mesa Arts Center

When: Friday, September 13, 2013 - Sunday, January 26, 2014 

Where: Dobson Main Gallery

While anyone can be an art critic in the proverbial sense, the canon of Art History provides a generalized list of greats, primarily seen through a Westernized lens. These artists, often referred to as “Masters,” are the “it” people of the art world, and their famous works have become a recognizable visual language. Today, artists continue to look to the past for inspiration and repurpose these icons into new interpretations. This exhibition looks at the influences Art History has had on contemporary artists and the masterpieces these artists have chosen to remaster. Featured artists include Carrie Ann Baade, Rachel Bess, Sandow Birk, David Bradley, Clea Carlsen, John Dawson, Daniel Martin Diaz, Lee Hazel, Siri Devi Khandavilli, Brad Kunkle, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Adam Miller, José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, Mike Reynolds, Chris Rush, Randy Slack, Christian Rex Van Minnen, Christopher Ulrich, Nichola Verlato, Larry Willis, Martin Wittfooth and more.

Opening Reception: 
Friday, Sept 13, 2013 (7-10pm)
