Denny Ah-Tye & Rex Buethe
Artist Reception: September 8th | 4-7:00pm
Over 48 years of Artistic Creativity marks the September Artists of the Month at the Goodwin Art Gallery. Denny Ah-Tye and Rex Buethe met at work at the then County Department of Public Assistance in the early 1970’s when Rex was carving a bizarre pumpkin for the decoration of the waiting room. Since then, both continued with their artistic endeavors , sometimes apart and then had ventures in sharing studio space downtown at the old Labor Hall and later on the Miracle Mile. Now both finally retired, they share studio space at the Port of Stockton.
The theme of this show is “Shores of Possibilities” allowing both to show in their unique styles with a central play on the whimsical, bizarre and sometimes macabre. Rex creates his art works- be they steampunk lamps, sculptural whimsical forms or collages of the creative bizarre. Denny is more an abstractionist using mixed media collage to present his images of the macro/micro universe and recently the popular dirty acrylic pours.
The Artist Reception is Saturday, September 8 th from 4 – 7 pm. Music provided by Guitarist, Jesse Hendricks.
