Currently on view at Weber State University’s Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery is Pure Paint for Now People, and ambitious exhibition of contemporary painting curated by Matthew Choberka and Lydia Gravis. The show features works by many artists with whom MWC’s readers will be already familiar from previous postings, and plenty we haven’t covered before, too.

Okay, so I can’t tell if the title of Caleb Weintraub’s new show at Peter Miller in Chicago is “The Leisure Class–Off the Wall and Out on a Limb” or if it’s “Rumspringa Humdinger” or if it’s both.  “Both” seems like the most likely option.  Here are  links to our interview with Caleb back in the… Part 1 Part 2

“So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” —Book of Revelations 3:16

Caleb Weintraub is a younger painter living and working now in Bloomington, IN.  His most recent solo exhibit was in September 2007 at Peter Miller Gallery in Chicago.  Caleb, himself, in my limited experience, seems to be mild-mannered, easy-going and generous. His work is another story–and the story is apparently the Book of Revelations meets Lord of the Flies in keyed-up Technicolor (a few drips and splatters thrown in for added action). There’s no lukewarm here. The paintings are big. The paintings are many. The paintings are, well, just MORE.
