The best art wakes us, calls us to attention, and offers a new perspective on the familiar. Tom Kiefer’s photos possess both a commanding visual presence and a powerful human message. They offer both straight-forward and intimate depictions of a really complex subject.
It’s worth noting that it’s not every day that you have an artist like Tom Kiefer present at an opening. This is Tom’s first major solo exhibition, but since we’ve announced it, he’s received a dizzying amount of national press, and this exhibition is now booked for the next two years. In short, he’s kind of a big deal. And he’s eager to what this work means to him, personally.
We’ve designed 3 exclusive and unique opportunities for you to meet Tom:
$15 & Space is Limited
The VIP private gallery tour with Tom Kiefer and our curator takes place from 5-6PM, but If you can’t swing that, from 6:30-8PM the exhibition is free and open to the public! You’ll still be able to purchase drinks and mingle with the artist and we’ll have live music from Christian Garcia too.
$10 & Space is Limited
* Your ticket includes a cup of Uncommon Grounds coffee and yummy breakfast nibbles.
While the aesthetics of the images alone are striking, the work reminds us of the game-changer that is context. The stories behind these objects, especially the mysteries, are what give the work its real power.
October 29 7PM
* Sponsored by the Saugatuck-Douglas Art Club
