New works by Heather Gabel: Supernatural? Perhaps with Christopher Norris – JULY 9

POVevolving Gallery and Print Studio will host artists Heather Gabel and Christopher Norris (aka Steak Mtn) July 9th for a month long exhibit of their latest works. Heather and Chris have much in common, most notably a background heavy in design work for many bands. Both also share an obsession for the face melting powers of the darkest kinds of imagery while maintaining their unique and vaguely ironic interpretations. The title of the show itself is the perfect anomaly for these two visual artists, pulled from a Bela Lugosi/Boris Karloff classic, it personifies their attraction to the kitsch of the occult. The results of their insatiable appetites for a viscerally brutalizing aesthetic can be seen at POVevolving this July/August when they have their way with the space. The larger front room will showcase their fine art work; drawings and collages culled from their wildest dreams and worst nightmares, while the smaller and fittingly cave-like back room will serve as a living breathing archive of their cumulative efforts in design. Showcasing sketches, xeroxes, original album artwork and shirt designs for such bands as Against Me!, Alkaline Trio, Rancid, Fake Problems, Joan Jett, Garbage and Green Day assembled together for the first time. “Supernatural? Perhaps.”
