Painter Gary Komarin was a student of the late neo-expressionist Philip Guston, though, from what we've seen, it seems Komarin's work hews closer to the abstract expressionism Guston abandoned in his later years, with bursts of color and random squiggly lines betraying no real figures or subjects whatsoever. He has been known to throw in the occasional recurring motif from time to time, however, with some of his paintings featuring childlike depictions of cakes and wigs. The Lake Project, a new collection of Komarin works, opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, 2251 Vantage St., and continues during regular gallery hours (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays) through February 19. Call 214-905-1252 or visit gremillion.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Jan. 21. Continues through Feb. 19, 2011
