Eberhardt Painting Cart 2015An exhibition featuring paintings and drawings by Brett Eberhardt.

Eberhardt reveals the commonplace in all its multifaceted grandeur. He chooses humble objects and spaces and recreates them through concentrated observation. As he says it: I want people to pay attention to nothing because I think the whole world is there. These

paintings exude a warm, existentialist feeling of empathy. They are quiet, lonely objects that draw the viewer in with their miraculous sense of light and space. They cannot be fully experienced online or in a book. The Catich Gallery is proud to present them this fall!

Please join us for an evening with the artist on Wednesday, September 16 starting at 3 pm.

Free and open to the public.
