ArtDaily.org: Mikel Glass | The Discarded

From ArtDaily.org ... Mikel Glass’s art ranges from Realist paintings to postmodern sculpture of such items as a used pizza box or shipping box. The 12 sculptures, 23 paintings and an installation piece in Mikel Glass The Discarded reflect the artist’s Realist style. “Mikel’s painting and sculpture are a powerful intersection of contemporary themes rendered with astounding craftsmanship,” said exhibit curator Blake Milteer.

With this exhibit, the FAC is producing a 60-page catalogue with a foreword written by FAC President Sam Gappmayer, an introduction by Milteer and an essay by filmmaker J.J. Abrams.

“Mikel Glass approaches his work with a fearless passion,” writes American Artist.
