Grizzly Grizzly is a collaborative effort of five VCU BFA 2005 graduates; Mike Ellyson, Steven Little, Dennis Matthews, Bruce Wilhelm and myself. We started the gallery December and have since already shown 4 emerging artists and Feb 5th we’ll be hosting two more. The space is a chance for the 5 of us to create a different kind of gallery experience in Philadelphia, where the only concern is to show exceptional emerging artists. For these first three shows we sought artists who have unique approaches to the art making process and brainstormed how to curate them into 2 man shows. The gallery layout places the two artists in close quarters and the experience we are hoping to relate is one where each artist’s work really converses with the other. Artists selected to show are encouraged to give input on the curatorial process. Future shows will include solo exhibitions, installations, various performances, and group shows.
