“It Came From Left Field” is an exhibit featuring gritty, graphic imagery by Jason Baldwin, Herb Joseph Rieth III and Ming Donkey, will grace Young Blood Gallery’s walls July 10th through the 31st. Opening night take in beer, wine, and art inspired by the underground comic book scene, and mingle with the long-time buddy artists by way of Alabama, Vermont and Mississippi.
Donkey found himself immersed in the art scene his entire life with an artist father who encouraged him to paint, draw and design on a regular basis. Baldwin found his start with skateboard designs and comic books, and today prints from Baldwin’s collection can be found at The University of Southern Indiana, and the Laurel Arts League, just to name a few. His pieces in the show are based on childhood stories, and each painting portrays a moment in time suspended separately from his past and present self. Herb Rieth stumbled into the art world by way of his punk rock band, and today expresses himself with uniquely painted fabric, as well as teaching art at the University of Alabama.
The three “left-fielders” gala kicks off at 7 p.m. with wine,beer, music and give-aways and will offer patrons the opportunity to purchase these one-of-a-kind pieces of art at an affordable price.
