Future Events

Coming soon to GraySpace Art is the three person show Unhinged,

                                                       featuring mid-career abstract painters Fran Scorzelli and Peggy Ferris and assemblage artist Dug Uyesaka. 

No doubt absorbing the cultural imprint of the beatnicking ’50s and the cultural liberation of the ’60s, the stage was set for a comfortable foray into a lifestyle based on creation overconsumption. These three artists embarked on a path of self-actualization ultimately leading to abstraction. Unhinging from classic representation, and generated from the subconscious intuitive level, each artist has achieved that bingo moment when that inner impulse – whatever and how beyond words it is – collides beautifully with what takes form in their respective mediums.
