The Summit Gallery is pleased to announce, in partnership with Alternate Projects, the solo exhibition, Rick Mallette: Filling the Void. This show opens with a reception on Thursday, August 5th from 5 - 8 PM. The reception is free and open to the public with complimentary light bites and refreshments available for purchase. For this exhibition, The Summit Gallery presents large-scale murals and paintings by Cincinnati-based artist Rick Mallette. Reading much like automatic drawings, Mallette's pieces are distinguished by the highly animated movement of their biomorphic imagery. Bursting with energy, these shapes float abstractly against almost claustrophobic grounds, and with few places for the eye to rest, offer unending surprises for the viewer. Of special significance are a number of new works made by the artist specifically for this exhibition. Rick Mallette received an MFA in 1994 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA in 1990 from Western Michigan University. The artist shows extensively in the region and is in a number of important collections. Rick Mallette: Filling the Void runs through October 16th and can be viewed 24 hours a day except when closed for a private event.
