beinArt Surreal Art Collective exhibition "Anomalies"
"Anomalies" will be the third beinArt Collective group show at Copro Gallery, curated by Jon Beinart. The participating artists have been hand picked for their natural disposition towards the strange and deranged. This exhibition will showcase over 50 artists' interpretations of "Anomalies" and sideshow/carny culture. There will be paintings, drawings and sculptures of subjects that will deviate, distort and mystify. Human oddities, anatomical wonders, freaks, geeks & gaffs. Step right up and peek inside the beinArt Collective's cabinet of curiosities!
Participating artists include: Travis Louie, Esao Andrews, Chris Mars, David Stoupakis, Chet Zar, Christian Van Minnen, Scott Scheidly, Jessica Joslin, Turf One (Jean Labourdette), Naoto Hattori, Gregory Jacobsen, David Choquette, Brendan Danielson, Sandra Yagi, Tom Bagshaw, Pamela Wilson, Matt Martin, Scott G Brooks, Peter Gric, Dietmar Gross, Heidi Taillefer, John Brophy, Richard A Kirk, Mia Araujo, Santiago Caruso, Tom Kuebler, Karl Persson, Jana Brike, Beau White, Heather Nevay, Erik Thorsandberg, Jason Montinola, Stephanie Henderson, Jennybird Alcantara, Jessica Ward, Jeff Christensen, Macsorro, Matt Dangler, Leslie Ditto, Lee Roswell, Sarina Brewer, Jennifer Knaus, Tim French, Agostino Arrivabene, Caitlin Hackett, Cliff Wallace, Mark Elliott, Brian Smith, Hector Javier Ramirez, Larkin, Murielle Belin, Erik Alos & Mark Gleason.
The beinArt Collective was formed to increase public awareness of strange figurative art, in galleries, online and in print. Each artist has been selected for their ability to express themselves imaginatively with exceptional technique and uncompromising individuality. The beinArt Collective is testimony to a huge international movement of figurative artists who have resisted current trends in the art world and remained true to their artistic vision.

Mark Garro "Atom's Eve"
Mark Garro's thought provoking retina rocking imagery makes a return orbit to Copro Gallery for his 3rd solo show. "Atom's Eve" rounds out this trilogy of apocalyptic yet strangely hopeful narratives that address the various ways the human race coexists yet exploits Mother Earth.
Mark's new body of work will include slightly larger in scale paintings and for the first time drawings, a "three of a perfect pair" answer to the previous exhibits. Drench your mind in Garro's unique sense of composition, color, detail and visualizations of End Times.
