If you’re in the area be sure to check out Scott Campbell‘s first solo show in NYC.
“In what will be his first solo presentation of his works in New York City, Scott Campbell will showcase his unique aesthetic via sculptures, paintings and drawings. Campbell has the taken the blue collar grit and lore of tattoo culture and extracted a visual language and wit that are supremely refined and deliberate. His uncanny ability to tell a story with any medium, flesh or otherwise, will be on display for his upcoming exhibition, â€śIf You Donâ€™t Belong, Donâ€™t Be Longâ€ť, which will feature all new work. The opening reception kicks off Thursday, April 29th at 6pm, running through 9pm. The show itself will be on display until May 29th, 2010.”
