For Immediate Release:

New Exhibit @ ArtObjectGallery
592 N FifthStreet, San Jose, CA 95112
Eight of San Jose’s exquisite contemporary painters will be exhibiting at ArtObject Gallery, 592 North 5th Street San Jose, from November 18th through December 16th. With an opening reception on Friday night November 18th from 6:00pm to 11:00pm.

“Belly of the Beast”  Ben Jonson wrote "Batholomew Fair" (1614): "What do you say to a drum, sir? It is the broken belly of the beast, and thy bellows there are his lungs, and these pipes are his throat, those feathers are of his tail, and thy rattles the gnashing of his teeth".  This is an exhibit of paintings selected by painters. The belly reflects the work that goes on in our studios (at times we are all in the belly). We painters sing with our brushes and sometimes paint with our teeth. We rattle the bushes in our lonesome pursuit. With much work behind us, we sometimes strike moments of genius. 
Please come and write about this truly passionate collection of paintings.
Karen Ehlers
