Date: November 7, 5:00 pm-7:00pm
Location: Center for the Arts, 606 6th Street
Details: Hungarian artist Marcus Goldson’s watercolor paintings and prints in “The Daumier of Budapest” express the vibrant absurdity of Budapest's streets. Goldson arrived in the Hungarian capital in the early 1990s and discovered he could not afford materials to make sculpture - what he had studied in art school. He turned to drawing the gritty post-Communist city around him, which became watercolor paintings and prints featuring tenement houses, thermal baths and Chinese fast food buffets. Goldson's technique of caricature has been described as an extrapolation of keen observation - a kind of truth-on-steroids. His artwork?plays the same role?to the?Central European capital?as the drawings of?the French caricaturist Honoré-Victorin Daumier did?to Nineteenth Century Paris.?Curated by Jeffrey Taylor,?Master in Gallery Management & Exhibits Specialization at Western State Colorado University. 

Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 7. 5 – 7 p.m. 

?Show runs November 5 – December 3. At the Piper Gallery.?
