BRANDON GALLERY GOES WITH EXQUISITE CORPSE AS HALLOWEEN APPROACHES

Fallbrook’s Brandon Gallery echoes a century-old tradition of artists’ collaboration with an “Exquisite Corpse” project in October, it was announced today.

EXQUISITE CORPSE --- Carol Zaleski, left, and Kathleen Morgan put finishing touches on two of three “portraits” in Brandon Gallery’s Exquisite Corpse project. Brandon Gallery will host a public reception Saturday, October 18, from 4-7PM at the gallery, 105 N. Main, Fallbrook, CA 92028.

Noreen Ring, gallery director, said that several teams of artists are creating unique paintings of a figure; however, in keeping with the unpredictability of the “Cadavre Exquis” art form, each person does not see the entire “body of work” by the other artists, but only enough to know where and how to link her segment.  The Exquisite Corpse approach dates back to the 1920s surrealist period when artists celebrated the idea of art “created by all” instead of one.

Five well-known and skilled artists from Brandon Gallery are participating through the end of the project on October 18.  The artists: Virginia Cole, Kathleen Morgan, Colette Passini, Noreen Ring and Carol Zaleski worked individually and collectively to create three finished canvases.  Each piece will be sold during a silent auction at a public reception and sale Oct. 18, 4-7 PM.
