Not Much to Look At is a group exhibition of newly-commissioned ugly paintings by Bay Area artists. Participating artists have been asked to create one new ugly painting for the show between November 2014 and January 2015 based on a prescribed set of constraints (to be revealed later). During the opening reception on January 30 and throughout the run of the exhibition, gallery visitors will be able to vote for the ugliest painting with prizes awarded at the close of the exhibition. An artist talk and panel discussion on contemporary painting will also take place during the exhibition dates (February TBD). Stay tuned for more details!
