Third Annual Surreal Salon Juror, Chris Ryniak, Featured during Special ARTiculate event at Baton Rouge Gallery
On Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010 at 4 p.m., Baton Rouge Gallery's popular ARTiculate series, which aims to give the public insight into the artist's mind via the artist's mouth, will host a special engagement featuring painter, sculptor and juror for the Third Annual Surreal Salon, Chris Ryniak.
Ryniak will be discussing his critically-acclaimed artwork, techniques, inspirations and the Surreal Salon exhibition itself.
According to Ryniak, "Whatever the medium or outlet that I explore with my work, the message is always the same, and that is to never forget the wondrous world beneath our feet and the treasures it holds between the cracks."
Chris Ryniak's paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries throughout the U.S. including some of the nation's most popular contemporary art galleries: Copro Gallery (Santa Monica, CA), MyPlasticHeart (NYC), Roq La Rue (Seattle, WA), Gallery 1988 (Los Angeles, CA). A rising star of the pop-surrealist movement and contemporary art in general, his work was recently featured at Art Basel, (Miami, FL), inside the pages of popular publications such as Hi-Fructose and Juxtapoz, as well as abroad in Germany, Canada and Italy.
The presentation begins at 4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
