When a hotel goes up next to a hotel across the street from a hotel, it begs the questions, "What the hell?" But growth is good, something founders of new art gallery, Swell, would agree with.
"We want to enlarge the artist community," said co-owner Kelly Knopp. The plan, Knopp said, is to hang a new group show of 25-30 local artists about every two months. He said Swell will include new artists, but the gallery's mission is to display work by established artists who may not otherwise get much exposure. The upcoming group show will display work by artists who were prompted with one word: Dinosaurs. See work by Swell owners Knopp, Julia Green, Noble Hardesty and Stuart Holland along with Erin Cunningham, Jeremy Lanningham, Adam Rosenlund and more. It will be dino-mite!
