• Chaos opens June 26th at Green Door Gallery from 10am-8pm
• Green Door Gallery is located at 120 North Main in historic Livingston, MT.
Green Door Gallery is pleased to present Chaos, new works by Carla Pagliaro. The paintings contain elements of everything Pagliaro has done over the past fifteen years. Her approach is first to paint realistic elements and then proceed to obliterate a lot of what she has painted, creating a more and more abstract work. Often, her favorite and most time-consuming areas need to get painted out, something she finds to be very satisfying. Of the process, Carla says:
“It’s liberating not to get too attached or precious about it. They are chaotic, because in these times that’s just what comes out. But, of course, it has to be coherent chaos, and that’s the tricky part. A lot of them are also pretty bloody. I’m not sure where that’s coming from, but it feels right so I don’t question it.”
Green Door Gallery celebrates the work of regional artists and a culturally engaging experience for the viewer. It is located in the heart of historic downtown Livingston, Montana in the old Chatham Building. As a member of the Livingston Gallery Association, Green Door participates in the 4th Friday Art Walks each month June through September as well as the Holiday Art Walk in November and events year-round. Green Door Gallery is located upstairs at Wheatgrass Gifts at 120 North Main Street in Livingston. 406.333.2330. //wheatgrasssaloon.com/gallery/
Green Door Gallery is committed to keeping Livingston healthy and our economy strong by frequently sanitizing surfaces, encouraging social distancing and managing occupancy. Masks and hand-sanitizer are required upon entry. Mask will be available if needed.
In keeping with the effort to keep numbers down in the gallery for social distancing, Green Door Gallery will be hosting only 2 (instead of 4) exhibitions this summer. Both shows will remain up for longer lengths of time to enhance the chance that more people will be able to see the shows.
The first show, “Chaos,” will run June 26 - August 21. The second show will open August 28th and also be up for two months.
I should add that the “artist reception” will be more of a weekend-long open house - - beginning Friday morning and running through the weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday.)
