Jack Leamy in The Ramp Gallery through November 28

What: MYSTIC SUPERHERO by Jack Leamy Where: The Ramp Gallery When: November 17–28, 2011 In the words of the artist, Jack Leamy, “Painting is a vital spiritual experience, a living thing with the potential to be confrontational.  I bring an ethical and moral inquiry to the viewer-­‐participant. A painting is a window in the sense that it opens up to the  ages inspiring a reckoning. To stop and  enter a painting is a transcendent and  transpersonal  experience revitalizing the mind.  It is the nearest thing to primordial religious vitality  possible  -­‐without the religion.”
