Human Chimeras Opening Party Tomorrow!!

Celebrate the end of summer with our newest art opening at the Reclaimed Room!  Artists Giuliana Pinto and Sam Russell transform our space into dreams and explorations of the human mind and body.  Take it all in and meet the artists tomorrow from 4-6pm at our opening reception!


Sam Russell


Sam’s background is in movement, spoken-word and painting.  Self-taught, Sam’s journey in painting over the past 25 years is a paradoxical story of an iconoclast embracing the icon.  The current series of paintings in Human Chimera track the abstraction of Sam’s classic “entity” figure:  this androgynous icon has repeated itself in countless variations over the years in Sam’s work, serving as a remedy for the existential dilemma of the godless.  Perhaps the iconoclast is finally ready to pull the icon apart, stay tuned.
