Is it possible to go against the grain and with it at the same time? Jay Shinn, the current artist exhibiting at the Marty Walker gallery, seems to think so. His new paintings and sculptures are minimalist yet detailed and imply man versus nature as he uses correction fluid to simulate the natural pattern of wood grain on veneer. Experience Jay Shinn's With the Grain from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and by appointment through February 9 at the Marty Walker Gallery, 2135 Farrington St. Admission is free. Call 214-749-0066 or visit martywalkergallery.org.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Jan. 10. Continues through Feb. 9, 2008
