Going Dark: Black & Luxe

The Work of Raif Adelberg @ HVW8 Art + Design Gallery

It might be that my mood has grown a little darker.  I had planned to paint the walls of the gallery a traditional white for the opening of Woman. Hair. Power.  Then somehow, I was struck by the awe and wonder of blackness.  It could be the constant loop of Kathleen Cleaver in my ear chanting, "Black is beautiful!"  Whatever the reason, I've fallen head over heels in love with the look of lacquered black.  

We begin revamping this weekend in preparation for The Ground Floor Gallery's inaugural exhibit.  You may find yourself staring at art on some very subversive wall space.  This is a good thing.  In opening a residential gallery,  I wanted to challenge the assumptions we make about art experiences.  Assumption number one - art needs white walls. No it does not!  

Just take a peek...

See you at the art show!
