Twisted minds Art Show

Twisted Minds has a art show going on now with some of Reno's  best artist. The featured Artist is Bart McCoy along with Wes Lee and some others very good artist that unfortunately  I didn't catch their names, because there were no name tags to be found.

The studies by Bart McCoy  are awesome in there detail, it was like looking at a photograph. Most of the Pieces that are in the show are smaller, a couple of my favorite are a Beetle hanging from a string,  a glass eye with a orangey red background, and a portrait of a birds skull,  It looked like you could pluck them right out of the frames, they are that well rendered.

Wes Lee, had assorted pieces, two portrait of people dressed up at Burning man, a portrait of a woman with her hair being blown with a ornate border with a fly and beetle and an American flag done in a limited pallet of values of browns.

There is one large piece done by an anonymous artist witch was of a girl in a red rain coat looking back at the viewer as she walks into a huge menacing storm cloud.

 the bronze sculptures are something you should check out especial if you have kids. the sculpted pieces are of little big headed  children almost doll like, doing various thing  there are a group of these children with little devil horns over running a larger figure that is sitting with a blank expression on it face. the other one of this that i liked was one of the child like doll figure has fallen asleep on a pillow mattress.

There is a piece that I really like of father time there that I find just amazing it the level of detail that's in the work.

If you get the time I highly recommend this show. Its at one of the cooler gallery/ tattoo parlors  in town, Twisted Minds. Its the kind of work I really enjoy seeing, its not a lot of pieces, but the pieces they have are quality works of art.
