Preview: Chris Mars

by Annie OwensPosted on

Certainly one of the most anxiously awaited exhibits this year, Chris Mars’ solo show will open at Billy Shire Fine Arts Gallery in Los Angeles, September 13th featuring his newest works in oils. At 6p.m., an hour before the opening, Chris will be in attendance at the gallery (amazingly!) to sign copies of his book (only) Tolerance. The 176 page, hard cover compendium, published by Billy Shire Fine Arts and Last Gasp, features over 150 large full color paintings and numerous essays by Chris, compiled throughout his years as an artist.

If you miss him there, he will be doing another book signing September 14th at the Laguna Art Museum, 3-6pm. This signing coincides with In The Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor a group show now on view through October 5.
