"World Changers Exhibit" in Guthrie, Oklahoma
So whatever happened to Utopia Joe? Has he left the great state of Oklahoma and taken his fabulous multi-dimensional art as well as his equally fantastic multi-talented wife with him. Or is he still here somewhere creating new art in new space? The answer is in Gallery Grazioso in Guthrie, Oklahoma.
Gallery Grazioso is located in downtown Guthrie at 301 W. Oklahoma Avenue and for anyone who prefers to begin with mind travel: www.TheGalleryGrazioso.com. However Joe Bohrer aka ‘Utopia Joe’ has work that must be seen in real time to appreciate his new direction. Going in a new direction does not mean that Bohrer has abandoned his old direction; it only means he has added another direction. So, in addition to multi-dimensional and multi-talented add multi-directional to list of Bohrer attributes. This does not necessarily refer to any tendency to be running around in all directions or anything like that, does it? Check it out and decide for yourself.
“World Changers” is the theme of the latest work of Joe Bohrer opening a 12 week exhibit Saturday October 13, 2012 at Gallery Grazioso. The opening night reception begins at 6:00pm with food and wine at 7:00 for the decadent at heart. The “World Changers Exhibits” features that new direction for Joe Bohrer, beautiful significant paintings of symbolic and iconic faces that can change the way the future plays out. According to Bohrer, “The eyes are the portal to the soul. And for me, they are the focal point of what I am doing now. To capture the flash point of a child’s eye, or fierceness of an ancient Native American warrior, or the luster of a geisha girl, begins with the eyes. Whether I use gray tones or bold splashes of color, the eyes are the pinnacle.”
Tiffany Bohrer is the Executive Director of Gallery Grazioso and looks forward to presenting the latest works of her husband at Gallery Grazioso. In addition to her position as gallery director, Tiffany is also well known as “The Tipsy Artist” so it should be great fun to enjoy a glass of wine with them on Saturday evening while taking in the “World Changers Exhibit” and the Native American Flute Music courtesy of Bill Merickel.
The work is portraiture that transcends the portrait of the individual. It is not a portrait of Clint Eastwood in his character from the trilogy of Serge Leone spaghetti westerns. It is the portrait of the ‘man with no name’ that has become an icon of universal Americana. “I am trying to bring the viewer face to face with larger-than-life portraits of powerful images that comes in many different, and often times, unexpected forms.” –Joe Bohrer, Artist.
