Scott West STILL show details!!!


with a special performance from musical guests: THE WAPSIPINICON

A screening of the CLOUD CULT documentary No One Said It Would be Easy on Thursday, November 11th 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

A panel discussion on the relationship between art and music on December 1st.

6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

West will take up residence in the gallery during Tarnish & Gold’s open hours to paint live producing new work for the STILL show, building off of West’s performative artistic practice. Stop by and see how the show evolves.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN- Painter Scott West, known internationally for his work as a member of the band CLOUD CULT, is proud to announce his first solo gallery exhibition, “STILL”, opening November 6 at the Tarnish & Gold Gallery in Northeast Minneapolis. For “STILL”, West will exhibit 30 new studio works, all dated from 2010.

West’s choice of “STILL” as the title for his first solo gallery show is not without irony. There is nothing sedate about West’s canvases, with highly developed pictorial areas bouncing off of dynamic abstractions and explosions of color, they are “still” only as far as they are pigment fixed on canvas. West’s breakneck rate of production is also the opposite of “still”. While painting on stage with CLOUD CULT he literally has 45 minutes to create a work and even though the works for “STILL” have been created more slowly in the studio, for West that means working on a painting a day, often on more than one painting at a time. Once the works are in the Tarnish & Gold space, even then they will not remain “still”; as West takes up residency in the gallery he will re-arrange the show as he sees fit. “I hope,” he says with a mischievous twinkle, “that it will be a completely different show when it comes down from when it went up.”
