It's Ridiculous to Leave All the Conversation to the Pudding
The initial inspiration for this series of small oil paintings by Sara M. Zak was the gallery where they will first be exhibited...Buffalo's smallest gallery -- a phone booth at The Hydraulic Hearth. The paintings tell the story of calling up one's artistic heroes on foreign pay phones, having said heroes answer via cool outdated communication devices, and then getting together for a drink and/or dessert to converse about all the nuances of painting. Titled after Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, this exhibit is a release into the whimsical and the nonsensical -- a very welcome place where the joys of color, composition, humor and growth dwell. The exhibit will also contain audio conversations with a few artistic legends and even some classic (and not so classic) phone booth movie scenes.
